Sunflower Birthday

     I'm totally in love with the newest sunflowers from Conie Fong.  Her new 'Gnome' set, released a couple of weeks ago, featured a gnome holding a large sunflower, and Conie took that potted sunflower and did an entire set which she has called "Sunflower in a Pot."  :-D  I used one of the secondary sunflowers and one of the sentiments from that set to make this fun birthday card.

Colored w/ ProMarkers
Sunflower fussy cut w/ scissors
Mounted on dimensional dots
Score lines made using Scor-Pal board
Score lines marked w/ Zig markers
Sentiment & frame cut w/ Unbranded dies

     Sorry that today's post is both late and short.  My 13 year old grandson, a Type 1 diabetic, is in the Pediatric ICU with extreme ketone levels which have to be medically lowered and it's a slow process.  He's been there nearly 24 hours and it will be at least mid-afternoon before they will consider releasing him.  Needless to say, my mind really isn't on blog posts today.  :-D

     Nonetheless, Happy Crafting to all of you.  NanaConnie
