365 Cards Day 157 - Imagine this - Sunflowers ~ Spoon Full of Sugar Floral Fantasy & Papertake Weekly Challenge - Summer


Fortunately, this was a better day for making my 365 Cards challenge card than yesterday.
I decided on die-cuts for this one. The flower is comprised of 3 of the larger rosettes from a Sizzix Bigz Die, Flower Layers #2. The centre is a Nestie circle, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the edge recut with some deckle edging scissors.
I wrote the sentiment on the computer, putting each word into a text box so that each one could be placed exactly where I wanted it. After printing, I used my DIY Lego Stampamajig to stamp the frame for the sentiment in the correct position around the words.
A length of ribbon, a few dimensionals and Bob's your uncle!
A Spoon Full of Sugar has a theme of flowers this week; Papertake's Weekly challenge is to illustrate one of the 4 seasons, so with a summer sunflower, this is for those challenges too.

    Can you email me how to place the link in the comments without actually showing the link? Does that make sense?
