Sunflower Card with Verve Stamps

card 1
 I decided to pay homage to summer with a sunflower card for this week's Verve sketch.  I just picked up this DCWV pack and immediately fell in love with it!  The handwritten recipes behind the sunflower image stole my heart, reminding me of my Grandma...  I decided to use this beautiful Verve sentiment and embossed it in black EP.

I used pom pom fringe in place of the little tags.
card 2
 I had one scrap of this gorgeous grosgrain ribbon and made a loopy bow.  I've been knee deep this weekend in mixed media tags and decided to take a break for a simple card ~ now back to work!
card 3
 I'm adding my card to the VLV October Week 3 link up HERE and to WAW for challenge #205 HERE.

Beautiful use of yellow. The semi tattered recipe with the gorgeous sunflower and inspirational scripture make this super. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 205th AG challenge!
Blessings and Hugs, Carole

It's a lovely cheery sunflower, and especially welcome on today, since it was quite cool here where we are in the Upstate. It was pretty & sunny, but much cooler than we've had heretofore. Love the recipe tucked behind this sunny flower, and the tiny pom-pom lace was such a fun trim to add over the cheery yellow stripes. Also loving the doily. Pretty card, and wonderful design. Gave you a welcome shout-out on my post, so thanks for joining as a follower. If you are close to my area, we should meet up for lunch sometime. TFS & Hugs

Autumn, Indeed I DO know about SBC in Spartanburg, and frequently leave lots of $$$ there. I live in Easley as well....if you care to send your email, I have word moderation on, so no one shall see your personal info except for myself. Perhaps we can arrange a trip up to SBC or lunch, or stamping???? Lovely to have a another stamper in the neighborhood! My old stamp group disbanded. TFS

Absolutely creative! You're very talented. Is the sunflower a stamp or hand painted? I would appreciate resources please I would very much like to do sunflowers soon this summer of 2016. Thank you for your help. Sue Symon
