Happy Sunflower

Hey there! I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. Today's card is a thank you for a special friend. I used the sunflower from Autumn Beauty

I colored with Copics, starting with R08. 

Added YR07. 

Added Y17. 

Then I filled in with Y21 and used my blender pen to push in some highlights. 

I used E39, E33 and YR04 for the center. 

Filled in the stem and leaves completely with YG25. 

Added YG97. 

Then used YG93 to blend. 

For the background, I sponged Memento Dessert Sand ink around the edges. 

Used a cut sticky note to mask so I could sponged some ground with Memento Bamboo Leaves. 

I used the curvy cattails, from Fanciful Fall, and stamped with Memento Desert Sand. 

To make the big scallop bottom border, I placed a piece of Pure Luxury Tan Leather cs through my big scallop rectangle die and ran it through my Cuttlebug. 

I adhered the sunflower with Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used a Pumpkin Spice card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
