Thinking Of You

Hooray, we've all made it to Friday! Today's card was created for the latest Global Design Project card challenge. I created my card by stamping the sunflowers and leaves from the Sunny Studio Sunflower Fields stamp set onto some 110lb cardstock using various inks from Gina K Designs, Altenew, and Ranger Archival. I fussy cut the images out. I then embossed a focal panel for the front of my card using a Spellbinders starburst folder and adhered that to my card. I diecut the sentiment from Stampin' UP's early espresso cardstock and Unity Stamp Company's On My Mind die three times and adhered them together using some liquid adhesive. I adhered it to my card toward the top and then popped the sunflowers up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I adhered the leaves around the flowers using liquid glue and finished my card off by adding some clear rhinestone gems from Paper Studio around the images.

Love the embossed background and the happy sunflowers, fussy cut beautifully. I always admire someone who can co it, (I can't). A lovely large sentiment also.

Radiantly beautiful! Sunflowers are one of my very favourite blooms (as they are a ton of peoples') and I eagerly await their return each summer.

Around these parts, that usually occurs sometime in August. However, last year, due to a genuinely record-shattering heatwave, various types of flowers bloomed early and as a result, I spied the first cheerful sunflower in June. It will be interesting to see if that had any impact on when they'll grace us with their upbeat presence again this year (and, of course, to gaze upon them whenever they do return).
