I have been stuck on sunflowers recently! They are on my mind as I just cleaned up the last of the ones that were done blooming. The Flower Challenge active challenge is a birthday card with a shape. I can’t unsee the sunflowers as circles (my new favorite layout thank you to Freshly Made Sketches challenge #505). I was determined to use my blends more as I haven’t really played with them. I used the light & dark of Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, and Cinnamon Cider. I had some random sheets of SU! retired designer series paper to use up. I’m not sure on the exact colors of it, but it matched fine with a Night of Navy card base. I used the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and coordinating dies. “Hello” sentiment is from Beauty of Friendship stamp set. I found a random stamp sentiment on my desk (after cleaning up a bunch of paper scraps!) and I have no idea to what SU! Stamp set it belongs with. It was absolutely perfect for this card, being a smaller “Happy Birthday!” Sentiment. I cut the “Hello” and “Happy Birthday!” with a small die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.
