happiest day...

{for my TE/CardMaker blog hop post please scroll down or click here.}

Hello friends!!   Got a chance to make a card for one of my favorite challenges, ColourQ.  I used the current sketch from Seize the Sketch for my layout. 


When I saw the ColourQ combo I knew I wanted to use a big bold image for my card and the one I chose was the sunflower image from the MFT/LJD set Splendid Sunflower.  I stamped the sunflower using Close to My Heart's Sunflower ink and then the center of the flower using SU!'s Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry inks.  The leaves were stamped using SU!'s Bravo Burgundy.  Once I had everything stamped I trimmed all the images out (I don't yet own the companion dies... they are on my wish list!).  Some Pumpkin Pie polka dot patterned paper was added to the mix along with a Rich Razzleberry cardstock strip.  I layered everything up and added the sentiment from the MFT set Birthday Sentiments. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; SU! Rich Razzleberry; PP:  SU!; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Close to my Heart.
