What a wonderful place! I picked several that really attracted my attention, and this is my second one, Sunny Side of the Street. I love the black/white/yellow combo. For mine I added a little blue/white cloud bg for my backing layer.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. Did I tell y’all about the exclusive matching die for these sunflowers? It works like a dream and it only took a couple of minutes to die cut three sets of this sunflower bunch. After die cutting, I separated one sunflower from the bunch and colored it using markers and a water brush. I white embossed the sentiment directly on my main, black panel. I arranged and attached the remaining, uncolored sunflowers on the black bg and attached a punched fence on top. A die cut corner element was added and then my bright yellow sunflower.
For the blue bg, I used a self made cloud stencil and sponged on blue inks and a little yellow ink for a sunny effect. Everything is attached to a white, 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) card.

I had this open to leave a comment last night, and didn't get round to it before I shut the PC down. So I get double value, seeing it again today :D. I like all the details in this -the background, the single coloured sunflower, the way the little corner echoes the fence - what a gorgeous card in every way.
