~Autumn Sunflower~

We’ve been in the upper 80s and 90s for the last couple of weeks.  I’m over you, Summer.  Parks and recreation areas have been closed.  I’ve had issues with heat all my life.  I think it’s just getting worse as I get older.

Enough whining.  I have lots to be thankful for right now.  In just days we’ll be welcoming the 4th granddaughter.  She doesn’t have a name yet, but this grammy has assigned her  a Princess name.  She will be Princess Sunflower!

So my card this week leans heavily on the Autumn side.  The papers I used remind me of a quilt.  Quilts are for cool or cold weather… see where I’m going here?


The sunflower makes me feel warm and cool at the same time.  The deep yellow/orange leaves and the browns are warm and the crisp greens are cool.  The perfect flower.


I used:

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – Sunflower Season
Stamp Simply Steel Dies – Sunflower
Authentique – 6 x 6 – Pleasant
Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
Spellbinders – Classic Ovals
Enamel Dots
Baker’s Twine – Black and white
1/4″ ScorTape
Thermaweb 3D 1/4″ foam squares

Vanilla cardstock



Thanks for stopping by!

    What a beautiful sunflower card, Holly! I love the warm browns in the background (they remind me of a quilt too), and your sunflower is so cheery and bright! The twine is the perfect finishing touch!
