CCMC269It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week…it’s a FUN sketch!  I was having a touch time figuring out what I wanted to do for the challenge and then decided a nice sunflower would work!

The base of the card is 4 x 11 Wild Wasabi Folded.  I took two strips of Wild Wasabi, ran through the Pretty Prints Embossing Folder and added to the top and bottom.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla and used the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Sahara Sand and added to the card front.  I added a Chocolate Chip Herringbone print banner than a pointed strip in Wild Wasabi.  The Sunflower is Blossom Petal die – bottom layer Crushed Curry, top layer Crushed Curry print from Sweater Weather.  Each layer is sponged with Crushed Curry.  Leaves are the outline stamp from Gently Falling – Wild Wasabi stamped with Chocolate Chip, cut out and added behind the flower.  I stamped the greeting in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, punched with Bracket Punch and added to the center of the flower using dimensionals.  I added the flower to the card front.
