... we're on week two of the current CR84FN challenge - CR84FN36 with our lovely sunny colours of yellow, kraft and a neutral.
I've been having fun playing with bows - thanks to a wonderful tutorial by Becca - and I've got one on this card - it worked a treat. I started off by making my own gingham backing - a perfect match to the sunflower. I stamped the sunflower three times - using two of the images to make layers. The images were all coloured with Promarkers. I cut the base image out using my trusty nesties and also made a mat from the coordinating scalloped set. Before attaching the image, I tied on some raffia ribbon and did the bow! So proud of that bow! You might be seeing few more bows now that I can do them :) Finally, I added a sweet flower shaped sentiment which I think goes with the flower perfectly!
