Sunflower Bucket

      My stash of Thank You cards is getting low and I have a friend who has asked me to make several for her so I'm ramping up production of them.  I'm starting with this lovely sunflower image from Beccy's Place. 

     I used ProMarkers and gel pens to color and highlight the image.  I had merged the sentiment (also from Beccy's Place) before printing.  After coloring, I cut both of them with a QuicKutz square die and then used a Fiskars punch on three of the corners.  I dry embossed some metallic paper and used it behind the punched corners.

     The sparkly ribbons are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I tied the bow using my bow maker.  I think this will make a perfect Autumn themed thank you card.


     Wishing you the best of days and have a wonderful weekend.  Hope you find lots of "me" time to craft and relax.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

You did a beautiful job colouring the flowers NanaConnie, the highlighting really adds lots of depth. The punched corners with the metallic backing are lovely and I like the addition of the sparkly ribbon. Very pretty!

Connie, the flowers of your card are beuatiful and a great reminder of the late summerdays. I have all of them in my garden... sunflower, forget-me-not and larkspur. The metal bucket is a perfect vase for this rustic bouquet!
I can give back the "thanks" for sharing your creation with us in our Uniko Challenge. Greetings from Wiebke (Uniko BA)
