Trish asked me to be Guest Designer for the QFTD for this week. As the post isn't up yet, I am not going to reveal who that is. But I will tell you I had a blast going through her gallery. I am not familiar with this wonderful card crafter but I can tell you that she and I have a lot in common. I found a lot of bears in her gallery-one of my loves and also Sunflowers. So I decided to honor this weeks queen with a Sunflower. I didn't pick any particular card-but just the essence of her beautiful style and image selections.
I haven't played with this stamp in ages. I don't know what possess me but boy I got some dimension in this flower. It really is full and high. I colored the image three times and cut it out and layered like this. I just love it. It looks so regal on this elegant spellbinders die. QFTD I hope you love what I did in your honor. Enjoy your week. Your work is positively gorgeous.
Happy Crafting everyone. See you in the gallery!!!

Carol, you have done an outstanding job with the big sunflower. I have the stamp but have hardly ever used it! But I might give it a go after seeing how beautifully it has turn out. Of course I can never make a card as smashing as yours, but I can try!

Oh, Carol! I am absolutely thrilled to see your gorgeous card...and so beyond honored! This is such a beautiful card with the sunflower! I am going to pin this one!
