I Just Love Sunflowers!

HappyFall_291 blk

I love a whole row of them along the garden fence, but this year only 2 volunteers came up...from what my granddaughter planted the year before! I should let her plant them from now on!!

HappyFall_291 sideThis is a sneak peek at 2 new sets from Our Daily Bread designs that will be released on Sunday, Happy Fall and Harvest Blessings, and done for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast.

HappyFall_291I stamped and masked the sunflowers then stamped them twice more to give me a full row! When I used my Top Note there was actually too much space at the top to fit the sketch, so I came up with this plan. Cut it in half, trim the sunflowers and add a garden fence! (*snicker* hardly ever a mistake in stamping!) I cut another Top Note, cut it in half, edged it with a Copic to match the paper (faux'd cardstock!), then cut it almost in half again so I could scootch it out a bit to make a layer... the top panel covers the cut!

Wonderful card, Dawn! The white picket fence adds just the right touch to the sunflowers.
