Sunflowers & Smiles ~ Double D Challenge

Hello friends~  It's time for a new challenge over at Double D Challenges.  
This week, the theme is Sunflowers:


 I used Cheery Lynn's Sunflower Set, which is an oldie but a goodie die set.  I dug through my scrap box and found these two pieces of printed scrapbook paper that seemed to compliment each other pretty well.  I cut them using Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles.


The sentiment is stamped using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Little Words That Mean A Lot" and then cut using Impression Obsession Fancy Label die.

Here's what you could win when you play along:
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Dies - Sunflower 2

I hope to see you there.

Thanks for stopping by!

  13. This is weird, I left you a long comment yesterday while making my rounds. Got another email notification this morning, so clicked on it, which was for this Post. My comment wasn't here. So weird. Love your card and yes I agree, great minds think alike! I love the Patterned Papers you chose as your pretty backdrop and of course that magnificent sunflower die (wink wink) Beautiful layering and all. That sentiment is fantastic and I think we should both make garden art for our respective gardens. What a beautiful post! xo~
