Sunflower Wishes...

Hey crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing sunflower wishes for a new challenge on the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog.  Summer is winding down and our theme for this challenge is "Autumn Inspiration". 

You have until September 20th to link up your project to the Sisterhood of Crafters, "Autumn Inspiration" Challenge post with the winner announced on September 22, 2020.  The Design Team will choose 3 Top Winners and 1 Top Creative Winner.  Join the fun today and you could be one of our Top Sistahs!

Sunflowers are very popular this time of year.  Although they start blooming the end of July, beginning of August, I can't help but think of fall when I see their beautiful colors.  I have a friend's birthday quickly approaching, so I chose "Happy Birthday" as the sentiment.

"Happy Birthday"
The card base of white cardstock is layered with navy blue and a new favorite die cut, Altenew's Gradient Lines Cover in white also.  I stamped the sunflowers, colored them with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut them.  Two of the flowers along with the sentiment circle have foam tape for added dimension.  I love the contrast of the yellow and oranges against the navy.
From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock
CTMH Friendship Bouquet Stamps
Prismacolor Pencils
Prismacolor Blending Pen
Spellbinders Pinking Circle and Standard Circle Dies
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
 Other: Sentiment Stamp
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope I've inspired you to join our Sisterhood Challenge.
See you again soon!
