SMILE Birthday and Lovely Sunflower

-- And if you are in TN, that is a sweltering Hello to you! Yikes. Playing outside with my boy tonight and I was doing my best not to move around a whole lot because with the humidity I was sweating just from standing out there. It's special. Heat isn't too bad -- but the humidity -- WOW.

I  made a birthday card today for my sister. Her birthday is Saturday and long story short, the mail ran early today and I didn't get her card in the box. I'm super disappointed because with our distance I'm afraid she won't get it until Tuesday. Dag nab it.

I was mostly playing around with my markers and I stamped that sweet little sunflower from Lawn Fawn's "Our Friendship Grows" set. I love coloring those big sunflowers. I paired it with the new PTI stamp set Wet Paint III (Happy Mother's Day! to me).

I love how this turned out. I just masked the flower when stamping the leaves and colored it all in. I layered the panel over patterned paper from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad and added a couple of Studio Calico sequins and that was it. Very simple!

I'm entering this in this week's CASology challenge for the "Flowers" cue card.
I'm also entering it in this week's Paper Players "Clean & Simple Floral" challenge.

Thank you for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
