Sunflowers Everywhere

Hello everyone.  As promised I wanted to share the birthday card I made for my daughter with you today.  Her favorite flower is the sunflower so when I found some really cool felt sunflowers, I knew I had to use them for her.  Her card came together fairly easily.  Let's get started.

For this card I once again made a square card measuring 5 1/4" x 10 1/2", scored at 5 1/4".  I used Daffodil Delight for this.  I added a layer of Pumpkin Pie card stock cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4".  I ran this through my big shot using a texture plate of large dots.  I brushed the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink and attached it to the base with runner adhesive.  I added white glitter balls to the corners and some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the layer.  Then it was time to add my sunflowers.

As I said, I found a pack of 4 sunflowers at my local craft store.  I thought they were so pretty I wanted to use them for my daughters card.  I attached the flowers using a liquid glue and allowed them plenty of time to dry.  I wanted to add a little sparkle to the centers so I used a brown glitter glue and added dots.  While this was drying I went to work on the inside panel.

I started the inside panel for this with a piece of Whisper White cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4".  I pulled out a retired stamp set called Touch of Nature.  This set contained the sunflower stamp and I stamped 3 across the bottom of the panel using Chocolate Chip ink.  Using my colored pencils, I colored the stems and flowers in and added some grass.  I used a total of 3 colors to color the petals of the flowers.  I wanted to be sure they resembled the flowers on the front.  Next I used Daffodil Delight ink and my Curly Cute stamp set and stamped the Happy Birthday across the top.  For the main saying, I turned to another retired stamp set called Occasional Quotes and stamped the greeting using Pumpkin Pie ink.  I then added daffodil and pumpkin cupcakes using a stamp from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set.  

While I did not take a photo of the envelope, I chalked the front of it blue for a sky and added the same sunflower stamp and grass across the bottom.  I cut letters out for her name and placed them in the sky.  It went nicely with the card and she really seemed to love it.

Well, I am off to my laundry today with a little creating in between.  I will return tomorrow with another share for you.  Until then, thanks for stopping by today.  See you later and keep stamping!!!
