close up of butterfly

Close up of  Sunflowers

Hi, it's Thursday already.  Have been doing some heavy cleaning, so not much blogging.  So hot and sticky here still, that just running the vac and dusting takes all you have.  I drank so much water today I felt like a beached whale!!!

I used a digi image by Priscilla herself, and she was giving it free on the MMSC site.  I love sunflowers, so when I saw it, I knew I had to get it and do something with it!  I colored with copics and cut out two of the sunflower image.  I used Papier, Glass Finish in the centers and sprinkled a little yellow glitter on top.  When it dries it is slightly raised.  I curled the ends of the leaves upward a little before mounting them.  I made leaves with green card stock that had been embossed using a cuddlebug embossing folder and folded them in half and brushed on a little darker ink for depth.  The papers are by Daisy d.  I used a new sizzix die to mount the flowers on, used distress ink and faux stitches around the edges.  The little butterfly is from Michael's.  The white vinyl swirls are from the sticker dept at Michael's.

Another fun sketch Priscilla, and thanks for the Sunflower digi!

Hope you have a great Thursday.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later............

Hi Sue, what a fabulous card you've made with Priscilla's sunflowers...just gorgeous! Pretty dp which really sets off the flowers just perfectly. Stunning creation! Thanks so much for playing along with us again this week.

PS: I know what you mean about drinking so much water ;)

I love your card! It's so fun to see how different people have used the sunflower. I particularly love the blue checked paper you used . I thought Daisy-D had gone out of business. I am curious if you have bought it recently or if it was from your stock of stuff. Wonderful Job.
