Charming Gardeners

Donna Phelan back again. 

Today I have a pretty 'sunflower' to share with you. 
I changed up the colors to make it not look so much like a Fall flower.

Using the Cheery Lynn Sunflower Set I cut my petals 3 times in 3 different shades of blue, then sponged the petal edges using a blue ink.  Then I just layered them together topping with a center, that I die cut twice.  I think it is so bright and happy in these shades of blue!  I die cut my stem and leaves from 2 different shades of green card stock, assembled and placed it all together on a Memory Box Sideshow Tickets die cut, this is a retiring set.  I layered that with a piece of white card stock which I added a bit of texture to using a Darice Embossing Folder, Basket Weave.

I also added a Memory Box Orbitz Circle underneath my focal panel as an accent. 
This is also a retiring set, so get em' while they're hot!

I stamped my sentiment in Island Indigo ink, sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder
and heat set, all on a Vellum  strip.

Enamel Dots.
Button & Twine.

So much dimension--you know I loooooove that!

  1. Gorgeous card! All of the layers and textures give it so much dimension. Great details and I love the blue flower!

  2. I admire your creativeness when it comes to making cards. This change of color in the flower is an amazing and powerful example of what I mean. All of the detail and the dimension are splendid.
