A clean and simple sunflower card

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Here is a card I made using one of Meljen's older digistamps, I just love this sunflower and it was soooo much fun to color with copics. I have much trouble using copics with people or animals (need lots of practice) but I just love coloring flowers with them.

The digi is available here at Whimsy Stamps. Oh, and Whimsy Stamps has all digis on sale right now for 25% off until the end of the month (excluding custom digis).

To make this card I printed the image out twice, cut out part of the bloom and the leave, and then adhered them with dimensionals.

The designer paper is from basic grey (lemonade?). Card stock is Neenah (white) and Stampin up (olive). It's a pretty simple card as I am going to enter this to this week's Meljen's challenge with the theme of no more than 2 layers (not counting my image and card front here - hope that's ok).

Please excuse my terrible sewing, I had a hard time sewing around the rounded corners.
The sentiment is from Stampin up, and I added a little bit of ribbon to it. There is also a little bit of dazzling diamonds glitter on the bee's wings.

Here are the challenges I am combining:

Thanks so much for visiting!
Have a great day!!
