Sunflower for Mother's Day

Hello!  Easter and Mother's Day were pretty close on the calendar this year.  After making Easter cards for the shop, it was time to whip up things for moms, too.  Here is a giant sunflower for some deserving mother:


The sunflower comes from Inspired By Stamping's French Country set.  After coloring and trimming it, I used a black marker to run along the edges as best I could.  Don't want to see the white edges!  Then, I added a glossy center after adhering to the card base.


The flower stamp has a short stem, and I do wish it could be longer.  To hide the shortcoming (oh, pardon that pun!), I stamped a Stampin' Up! sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes on a hand-cut banner and hid the stem.


I'm so glad you could drop by today!  I'll be back soon with more cards for Mother's Day.
