Summer Sunflowers

Hello! It's Gracie. Welcome to my challenge post for Classy Cards 'n Such. This week we have a great inspiration photo! Our cards have to be Sunflower Inspired.

These are truly bright summer colors in an unusual combination, at least for me. I decided to emphasize on the sunflower theme adding accents of red and green around my central image.

I stamped a bunch of sunflowers with Penny Black Flower Gallery stamp set. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. Some of the flowers were stamped on a Spellbinders Classic Label Four, and some were fussy cut and adhered to the label afterwards. I applied Inka Gold -  Yellow Gold to the sunflowers to give them a nice shimmer. I added Silver Baby Rhinestones to the center of the flowers too.

I mounted the white label on a green metallic card stock, using Spellbinders Imperial Gold Label Four. That was mounted onto a Spellbinders Classic Label Four cut from red card stock.

For the front of my card I added a piece of patterned paper I printed on White Pearl Linen. I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut the patterned layer. 

I created a nice border with Spellbinders Classic Edges Two and Classic Decorative Inserts Three. To finish the design I ran across a piece of red ribbon, (slightly to the left), and tied a double bow.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Sunflower Inspired card! I invite you to join our challenge this week for a chance to win a special prize from the store.
