For my card, I used the sunflower image, found on this page. (Scroll down a little ways.) I stamped it on textured ivory paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Bic markers. I matted with a reddish-brown cardstock, after rounding the corners. I added the ribbon and bow, brown pearls, and the sentiment - also from Repeat Impressions. The card base is Very Vanilla, from Stampin' Up!


You also still have nearly a week to participate in the Designer's Choice Challenge - to make a Fall or Halloween card. This is for a chance to win a full sheet of your choice of unmounted rubber. The details can be found here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Oooh Lynette, I love sunflowers! So much so that I have painted them all round our kitchen! http://s496.photobucket.com/albums/rr328/shoshiplatypus/Paintings/?action=view&current=KitchenSunflowers.jpg

(I should adjust the colour balance on that photo as it's not quite right...)

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. Once I've decided on postage rates etc. etc. I shall be opening up my Etsy store! Nothing interesting on my work table at the moment except accounts books, and not much activity going on with them, either, I'm afraid to say!! ROFL. Have a great day.

This is beautiful, Lynette! It turned cold so quickly down here that this lovely sunflower helps to warm things up! I hope your folks are having a great time here -- lots of fun things to do, places to eat, and shopping!

Sunflowers are the best part about fall. I wish mine in my garden had lasted longer. This is beautiful. LOVE that ribbon.

Great card! Love that sunflower and the gingham ribbon you used. The pearls were a great finish to the card.

Super cute - that ribbon is a home run!

What beautiful coloring and wonderfully tied bow!

Lisa Lara said...

oh now this is just beautiful and happy and fallish. I love all the elements you combined here Lynette.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, Lynette! Lutefisk... Lol! Yes, you need a very strong stomach to eat it, let alone actually enjoy it, I think!! Thanks for the info re the pearl pen - I shall look out for that as it might be very useful. I opened my Etsy shop last night! Scary pressing the button to make it all "live" but now I'm excited, and looking forward to getting some interest! There's a link to it on my blog if you want to hop over and have a look! Have a great weekend.
