A Card for All of You!




Alphabet Challenge- Quadruple
Crafty Creations - Use Orange
Eclectic Ellapu - Pink Team-Flower and Purple Team-Texture Paste/Embossing
Fairytale Stampers - Flower/Ribbon
Glitter & Sparkle - Anything with a B
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes


I used 4 different papers, 4 Bling. Blue, Brown, Bow, Border and Blooms:) Stamped the Sunflower 6 times, coloured with Gamsol pencils and fussy cut each one and mounted them on sticky foam for 3D effect. Embossed the light blue paper with Cuddlebug. Stamped and embossed leaves on water colour paper. Cut it to make a border and coloured it with tombow markers, ( yellow, orange, green and dark red) using water colour technique. Put it all together and finished it off with sticker border in brass, with 4 gems (not real dang it) and a bow.

I have never had the pleasure of "meeting" Tina in blog land but I have had the privilege  of reading about her wonderful nature from all of you. You gave her a great tribute a couple weeks back and even though she has crossed through that door way too early, I am certain she is smiling down on her family, friends and all the people who cared for her. She is and so are all of you, part of the sky, bursting with joyous colours of Autumn enjoying the sun which warms the earth and brings such sweet flowers.

I enjoyed making this card and it took me quite a while to get it done but I enjoyed every minute of it in my new craft room created by my hubby for me. I love the challenges that I took part in...it was quite fun!

  2. Those sunflowers are beautiful! I love how you created the 3D effect.

    When I'm finally done homeschooling my last son, I'm going to add card making to my long list of craft obsessions. It looks like so much fun.
