ERPOM Challenge #3

I am posting the third challenge for a blog group I am in called Eyelets, Ribbon & Paper...Oh My! on Splitcoast Stampers. This weeks challenge was hosted by Emkay Designs. The challenge was to copy a sketch she posted. I chose a "Buckle" card and my stamped image inspiration came from a "find" I made while visiting the Dollar Store the other day in town. I absolutely LOVE sunflowers...almost as much as lilacs (they are smelling beautiful in the air right now as I type). I feel sunflowers are the "happiest" flowers along with daisies. The card is another 6x6 card with folds at 3" on both sides (total size of paper was 6"x12"-scored at 3" & 9"). I used a stamp set I almost sold last year on Ebay...now I am glad I didn't. It is actually the first stamp set I bought when I went to my first SU! party...like 11 years ago. It is a 2-step stamp Definitely Decorative Summer Sunflower and I used Summer Sun & More Mustard for the sunflower and Always Artichoke & Mellow Moss for the leaves. I used my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder Dies to cut the stamped image and background frame. The sentiment stamp "merci" is from PTI-Mega Mixed Messages and the inside of the card is typed in Word and printed on Whisper White.
