Sunflower Birthday

To me Sunflowers mean Fall – so I thought I would make a couple Sunflower cards for some friends with Fall birthdays!! I am way excited because I am entering this card into 2 challenges.

The first challenge is over at Stamplorations – By Weekly Sketch: Challenge # 19

Here is the sketch:

I also am participating in a fun challenge over at my friend Darnell’s blog djkardkreations!

Her challenge is NBUS # 2 – are you wondering  what that means – well her badge explains it all –

 So for my card I used a Stamplorations set called Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes.  I have never used this stamp set ever before! I used the circles to make two-toned centers for my sunflowers and then I stamped the leaflike stamps to make petals for my sunflowers – again in two tones!  I used the banner from this set and stamped Happy Birthday on it from another set.  I stamped on my middle strip of paper tone on tone with the circle – does not show up very well! And I used a Sissix Embossing folder to make the card background!  Okey dokey, Here is my creation:

sunflowerI am pretty happy with how it turned out considering I don’t stamp a lot of florals!! But I did create something I can use to let 2 very special people know that I care!!

Who could you create something beautiful for today?

Think about it and while you’re thinking, why don’t you leave me a message!!

Have a Beautiful Day!!

    GORGEOUS! I’m sitting here with a mega-watt smile on my face, gazing in awe at your lovely sunflower! Not only is your card incredibly pretty (way to rock the NBUS!), but you’ve sparked an idea for a September-birthday card for my mom! Of course, sunflowers will play a key role! Thank you!! Now, if the vision translates into the creation, I’ll be happy. Goal for today officially set….we’ll see what happens! Off to see what’s next in your blog of delight and dazzle!
