Sunflower Birthday, and Gifts for YOU!

There’s a really special lady with a birthday today…it’s Kim, the MFT Lady herself!  So I just had to pull out one of my favorites things, the LJD Splendid Sunflower stamp set and make her a card!  Kim, if you’re reading this… wishing you a very happy birthday today!  (And this card will be late!)  :)
I took some inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch #352 this week…
Happy Birthday, MFT Lady with My Favorite Things Splendid Sunflower by Tammy Hershberger
I know you’ve been seeing a lot of the Sunflower here lately, but I just love it so much… I thought maybe a pink version would make it easier to see again?  :)  I die-cut the sunflower using the LJD Splendid Sunflower Die-Namics with Pink Lemonade card stock, then stamped in Pink Lemonade hybrid ink.
  The flower center was stamped with Grout Gray hybrid ink and Steel Gray hybrid ink.  I also used my RV11 Copic marker to add some shading to the sunflower petals.  The leaf was cut from pale green card stock and stamped with Spearmint hybrid ink.  On the Grout Gray card stock panel on the left I stamped the BG Gingham background with Grout Gray hybrid ink, and I cut a Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX from pale green card stock and stamped in Spearmint hybrid ink with the new BG Romantic Script background.  The Pink Lemonade card stock back panel mounted on the Steel Gray card stock base was stamped with the BG Linen background in Pink Lemonade hybrid ink.  I added a tag cut from the Blueprints 14 from Grout Gray card stock, stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments set, and finished with some enamel dots.  The card measures 3 1/2” by 5 1/2”.

Now, did you catch there in the title where I mentioned “gifts for you”?  Since it’s Kim’s birthday, I’m going to give away some gifts!  I have three Die-Namics Free-with-$60 dies that I’ve received with orders in the last month or two, and I’m giving them away to three lucky people!  So, if you’d like to win one of these Die-Namics… the Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me, or one of two File Folders Edges Die-Namics… this is what you need to do.  Leave me a comment, and tell me what’s your favorite thing over at My Favorite Things?  What do you love?  The Pure Innocence line… the fabulous Die-Namics… are you a die-hard Who’s That Girl? fan, even though she’s long gone?  Do you love the stencils, the fantastic colors of card stocks, inks and accessories that are all perfectly matched up?  Tell me what you love the most in a comment here by Monday, July 7th at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.  I’ll post three winners here on Tuesday, July 8th!  (Please, only one comment per person!)  I will contact the winners, so please make sure your comment has a way for me to reach you or you won’t be eligible to win!
And on a side note, I want to send out a huge thank you to three special ladies… Celeste Goff, Tracey and Heather!  You three ladies leave me comments without fail on every post, and I want you to know that it’s very much appreciated!  I love hearing from you, and am grateful that you take the time to make me smile!

This is absolutely stunning in pink! I may need to get this stamp/die set now to stamp it in every color. :) I love it!

That's what I love about MFT -- the way the dies work with the stamps to make them even more spectacular. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card!
