More Sunflowers!

Hello again,

I'm back with a second post of the day and my second sunflower card!  I have the honor of being the guest designer at Sugar Creek Hollow this week and the challenge there is Sunflowers.  Not a hardship for me because I LOVE sunflowers.  I made this card first and was on a roll with sunflowers and used that theme in my earlier post for Our Creative Corner.


For this card, I started with an outer shell of Garden Green, followed by a layer of brown polka dots by Pink Petticoat (more digital paper printed on my home printer).  The yellow gingham is a stamp by Wendy Vecchi which I think will be a go-to stamp frequently for me because I love all things gingham!  I overstamped it with an Artistic Outpost ledger stamp in Brushed Corduroy.  I ruched some brown gingham ribbon and ran it across the burlap strip and also rusted the filigree corner piece before adhering it with Claudine Helmuth Multi Medium Matte.  The post card was printed on my printer and I added the words "You are my sunshine" to it along with XOXO.  See the prior post about the crinoline sunflower.  
I had a little extra time so I went ahead and finished off the inside and made a gift box too.
I want to thank the design team over at Sugar Creek Hollow for choosing me as the guest designer this week.  They didn't have a sponsor lined up so I asked if my Etsy Boutique could sponsor their challenge and they agreed.  This is my very first advertising so we'll see how that goes!  And if you are interested, I made a little embellishment collection with some of the embellishments from the two sunflower cards.  I listed 5 sets, but if it is sold out, check back later because I will add more.  If you don't see it appear, email me at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com and I'll let you know the availability of additional collections.

Linda, what a fabulous job you have done as our gd this week at SCH. I love that gingham stamp and must check it out. I too am a big fan of sunflowers (in my kitchen) and gingham, so of course I am in love with your card. Love the box for your work of art. Thanks again for working with us this week and sponsoring our challenge. Can't wait to see who the lucky winner is.
