Sunflower Birthday Wishes

***  This is still happening, my email notifications are not being received nor are most of yours to me.....I have no idea how to fix this issue.  Thankfully I have made a Blog List right here on my Blog so I can easily follow all of your Posts ***

Check this link out, Blogger  they say it has been fixed,  au contraire!

On with the show!

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog 
to share a Birthday card with you today! 

A little creation with Black and White with a POP of Yellow!

I love the Fall and I love Sunflowers, the perfect time of year to pull out these beautiful dies!  I started with the Penny Black, Border Edges.  Here I have cut it from White card stock.  Then using an old toothbrush and some craft paints in Black and Yellow I covered it with splatters, such an easy technique.  Taking Black Striped Designer Paper, I adhered it to the die cut piece, placing it all on my White card base.

I die cut this gorgeous Cheery Lynn, Sunflower from 2 different shades of Yellow card stock.  I layered them together using a Foam Dot for dimension.  I added a Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die cut in Black, beneath it.

My sentiment is by Gina K Designs, Birthday Blessings.  This was stamped in Raven Black ink.  Inside leaf stamped in Crushed Curry ink.  Nuvo Drops in Ebony as accents.

The centers of the die cut Sunflowers are the only portioned glued down, this way my petals can be lifted and moved to show a bit more dimension.

This card will be entered into the Challenge at;
