Sunflower Dance

     I was playing around with a cute and fun sunflower image (from Robyn's Fetish -"Buttons" is their challenge theme) and decided to use it three times to make a dancing chorus line.  I thought that made a delightful, summery image and this is what I did with it.

     The image and sentiment were printed at the same time.  The sunflower scene is colored with ProMarkers and Copics (they must be my favorite crafting items since I use them on 99.95% of my cards!), then cut with a simple rectangle die and matted.  I layered that onto a piece of  textured, yellow CS from the AC Cardstock 'Earth Tones' stack.  All the CS came from my stash and have been there quite a while.

     For embellishment, I added a punched and glittered flower to the right of the sentiment, and three buttons to the left of it.  The green 1/8th" ribbon was in my stash, waiting to be used.  I used that same ribbon to tie a double bow.  Once again, something not purely CAS but very close.  :-D

    I've decided not to complain about the heat any more because Mother Nature seems to be taking revenge by giving us another string of days even hotter than the 7 day heat wave we had previously.  Most of those days topped out at 101 or 102 degrees.  For the next 10 days, they are predicting 105-107 range and we were 106 yesterday.  Hey, I'm only reporting -- not complaining!  lol  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
