A blue sunflower!

Ok, I tried 3 different ways to photo/scan this card so the image on the red would appear. But to no avail, alas, you'll just have to trust that it's really cute!

This was made for the SCS inspiration challenge IC134. These colors are a blast from the past! Cranberry crisp and buckaroo blue were the InColors for 2006-07 cattie!!! The stamp is serene sunflower (SU!) and the sunflowers on the cranberry are from CTMH. The sentiments are vases in vogue (SU!) and autumn leaf prints(SU!). I used itty bitty bg in the blue around the flower on white layered on brown. The doodles are in close to cocoa (marker, SU!) and the shadowed in white gel pen! Vinage brads in antique brass were used in the corner. I struggle to not over embellish because I'm sending this to a couple and didn't want it to look so girly! Thanks for checking out my blog today. Things seemed to have been rushed this past week, hoping everything slows down for next week. I was even falling behind sending out cards, I wrote out six just this morning. It's great to make them but it's even better when they (the cards) are fulfilling their destiny and blessing people. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a pretty or fun card in the mail along with all those bills! Have you blessed someone today? Peace to all, Maria
