Thankful For You

Hi everyone, it's Jenn!  I'm back to share a card with you created for our challenge this week - Sunflower Inspired.

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew that I would be pulling out my French Country designer paper by Graphic 45. I literally am in love with every single sheet in this paper pad!

I started with a 4.25 x 5.5 card stock base. I distressed the edges of the sunflower paper from the French Country paper pad to add to my card base. Next, using Lattice Rectangles by Spellbinders, and white cardstock, I die-cut a lovely rectangle to stamp my sunflower on. I colored it, and then added a green bling rectangle from the Lattice Rectangles - Nestabling - Blue/Green Rhinestones around the sunflower, and just inside the lattice edges. I added some Mustard Seed Distress Ink around the lattice edges.

For my next layer, I used the opposite side of the sunflower paper, and a slightly dark card stock to create a long rectangle. I glued the pieces together, and then ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing folder. I love the weaved appearance you get from this folder. It makes my sunflower appear as if it is poking out over a fence.   

For finishing touches, I used the Teramo Labels from Memory Box, to die-cut a label to stamp my sentiment on. These lovely little label die-cuts are perfect for stamping small sentiments on, and there are two other sets that Beverly carries in the store. I own them all, and will be showcasing more of them at a later date. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and feel inspired to join our latest challenge.
