Sunflowers Noted

I wanted to send a little note to the parents of my nieces boyfriend who had just passed away this past week.  I didn't want to send a typical sympathy card and while going through my stash I saw this sunflower stamp.  It's by Northwoods Rubber Stamp 2013 and I stamped it on a piece of Graphic 45 paper from the Typography Collection paper pad and embossed with Log Cabin embossing powder by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I think this is my new favorite color embossing powder!  I love all the sparkle in this bronzy color!
I colored with my Tim Holtz Distress markers matted on a forest green cardstock and put it on a chocolate card base.  A few little antique buttons with twine and I'm done.  I love those flowers and I think I may get some kits together for the ladies for the next time we get together.  Maybe next time I'll off center the flowers.  Funny how we think of these things after we have completed a project!  LOL

Til next time..............................


  1. Susan, this is a stunner! I love everything about it. I'm sure they will truly appreciate your caring card!

  2. This is gorgeous, Susan! I love the gold embossed bouquet over the newsprint background!

  3. Oh Susan, this card, although hard to make due to the occasion, is absolutely stunning. A beautiful reflection of God's beauty and solace - I'm sure it will bring them comfort. It's GORGEOUS ♥

  4. What a sad reason to make a card. Love that you made a special card, and I so love this beautiful image. Love the pretty look of that pretty EP too!
