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…
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”.
