SSSC132 - Sending You Smiles

Good morning!  It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #132
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Simple Sunflower with the coordinating dies.  I used pumpkin pie and apricot appeal ink and did the rock n' roll technique with each of the sunflower images before stamping them onto the die cuts.  For the centers of the sunflowers I die cut them from early espresso cardstock and then stamped them.  Then I stamped the center images again onto a scrap of early espresso cs and punched them out using circle punches so the centers would have a bit of dimension (see close up picture below).  And for the crumb cake square panel behind the sunflowers I used the woodgrain impressions plate to add some texture.  Other than that I kept my card clean and simple.

Supplies: Simple Sunflower + dies - PTI, Woodgrain Impression Plate - PTI, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist DP, Nestie dies, Circle punches, Twine, Foam tape.  Colors: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!
