If you checked out my other recent sunflower card and read what I wrote, I mentioned that I was having trouble inking up the image and did it several times. I decided to make something of the halves that turned out. I also had more success cutting out the leaves of that embossing folder today. It was fun. The reason I said the sunflowers are in the dark is because of the black trim, and also because there is one hiding behind the leaves in the upper right hand corner. It's my mysterious flower. Thanks for looking!!

This is a fab card. Of course, I am partial because of the sunflowers but I love the layout and all your detail with the cutwork and the stamping and coloring. What a great idea to stamp the image on the card and then do the cutwork and then to stamp on the yellow and then to color the main image. Wow, it is just fantastic. TFS

This is such an artistic card. It has beautiful balance and form and has really given me some inspiration to try something with a little bit of bent. It is so dimensional, hope you keep exploring this technique.
