Warm (Sunflower) Wishes


It's been a little while since my last post (sorry!)... we had my daughter's first birthday party last weekend and with all the prep work (and recovery) and my son's birthday around the corner- my crafty mojo has decided to go on vacation.

Although I did manage to make one card this week! I originally had the idea for my card for Lawnscaping's Beautiful Florals challenge... but by the time I had it finished, photographed & edited it I missed the deadline! OOPS!

Luckily, I also created it for a new-to-me challenge blog- Share Joy Challenge! It's a weekly sketch challenge with a twist- you can choose to follow the sketch, the inspiration challenge, or BOTH! I always love a good sketch, but this week I decided to go with the tic-tac-toe challenge...

I chose the left most column- ombre, flowers, & yellow.

Warm (sunflower) Wishes

I stamped the largest sunflower from Lawn Fawn's Happy Harvest in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Using 3 shades of yellow Distress Inks (squeezed lemonade, mustard seed & wild honey) I blended them over the sunflower background to produce the ombre look. The sentiment is from Baaah Humbug (with the 'winter' word omitted) ! I love finding ways to use seasonal stamps all year long! Although, since it's almost summer time here in Arizona... my sunflowers are *almost* blooming!

And since it's taken me 3 days to write this post- I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge- Let's Polka!

Thanks for stopping by.. hoping to find my mojo this weekend!
