And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Sunflower Hello!

Hello sketch lovin' friends!  I hope you've had a wonderful week.  The weather here has been absolutely delightful...sunny and no humidity...makes me happy! Sunflowers also make me happy, and it just so happens that our spin for this week's sketch at The Sweet Stop is SUNFLOWERS.  Since it's the third week of the month, if you include a sunflower on your sketch card or project, you will be eligible to win a $15 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store!

Here is my card with the sketch and the spin:
Creative Nugget:  The layers of the sketch were made with some French Collection DP by Graphic 45 (*LOVE*), old retired SU! DP, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, and Early Espresso card stocks, a little stitching, and some embossing. The sunflowers, from the newly released Prim Blessings stamp set, were stamped, masked, and colored with Copic Markers on a Vintage Cream panel.  An extra sunflower was colored and cut to pop up on the middle sunflower.  The Fence Die was cut from Riding Hood Red and added to the bottom of the panel along with a little greeting from the Mini Tags & Sentiments stamp set cut with a Mini Tag Die and some colored rhinestones.  Now doesn't this card make you smile!

For more happy cards be sure to check out the other Sugar Babies!  Come join us over at The Sweet Stop this week for some sunflower fun and a chance to win a PRIZE!
