Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #65 - Sunflowers

Time for another fabulous Midnight Madness Challenge from Priscilla Styles!

This is the sketch for this week's challenge:
And my card creation using "Priscilla Styles" stamps "Sunflower Top" and Sunflower Stem".  These are just sensational!

First off, I embossed my images with a "Damask" Cuttlebug design.  Then I "Smooched" them so they would really stand out.  I did add some Copic color to the leaves and middle part of the flower.  I made additional smaller sunflower tops for extra embellishments.  Then I went a little crazy with adding borders using my Martha Stewart punches and Spellbinders die.

My DP is from Basic Grey "Origins" and DCWV.   Luckily, I had some yellow polka dot ribbon that was just screaming, "pick me"!   This was a fun card to make using all these different elements.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Marsha!
Sunflowers always makes me smile - they have that effect on people I think. The bright yellow color they are blessed with is just irresisteble - and the more the merrier! Your card leaves me sitting here with a smile to big for my head. I love all the sunflowers and all the yellow! The DP is fantastic and fits so well! I think I love just about everything with this card! Great spotlighting!

Thank you so much for playing with the Midnight Madness Challenge and thanks for the smile! See you soon!
