Sunflowers and Sunshine.../SOS#109 & TMS#206

Happy Sunday morning to you all! I hope that you've been enjoying your weekend so far! I have a card to share that I made for both the Shopping Our Stash #109 (Summer theme or summer colors) and Tuesday Morning Sketches #206 challenges:

The inside:

Here are the sketches you could pick from. I used the bottom right sketch for my card.

I chose to use sunflowers as my summer theme. I broke out a stamp set that I've had for over a year but never inked it before now. Yeah, I know, it's sad. And I have many more that haven't been inked either. I've vowed to start using instead of hoarding them! LOL! I stamped the image on water color paper, and again on patterned paper. I did something new: I colored patterned paper. Not something that I'd recommend as the ink and blending sticks tend to make the paper pill. I had to tweeze the itty bitty strings off. After coloring, I fussy cut the dress from the patterned paper and glued to the other image. I embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder, then added the rhinestones. Finished the inside and I was done!

That's it for now. I hope you enjoy your day today and thanks for stopping by!
