Priscilla's Sunflower

Well, today is Bob's last day of work, and I'm supposed to be getting things ready for his retirement pool party that we're having tomorrow, but I was just so inspired by this beautiful sunflower and all the challenges that it fit, that I just had to start out my day making this card! I find that if I wait til later, I just don't get to it, so have to strike while the mojo is flowing, right??!! Anyway, here it is, and it fits these 3 challenges:

1. Color Challenge 3 - cdaccc3 - at Crafter Digital Art Center - green, yellow, cream, using this beautiful sunflower freebie that Priscilla so graciously gave us. Thanks so much, Priscilla! The challenge and freebie are found here: http://priscillastyles.ning.com/profiles/blogs/color-challenge-cdaccc3;

2. Stamp Simply #150 Challenge - ssnotime150 - using the same colors, found here: http://notimetostamp.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2010/07/29/stamp-simply-150-a-color-challenge/; and

3. Splitcoaststampers Free For All Challenge - F4A23 - side-swiped (decorate side or sides of card), found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/free-all-f45/f4a23-side-swiped-7-29-10-a-t500607.html.

I printed the image 3 times, colored the bottom one with copics, the second one, colored top petals and fussy-cut for second layer, and third one cut out just center for layering. Layered them together and added distress stickles. The card base itself is Core'dinations sanded.

I loved making this card, and am glad I did it, but now gotta get to work!! tfl
