Sunflower Celebration

Good morning 🙂  Even the calendar is now saying that fall is soon settling in, so I guess instead of grumbling about the colder weather, I should be looking forward to all the great things that this time of year has to bring.  Pumpkin…everything!! Yum 🙂  And cozy sweaters, pretty leaves, no more bugs!!

I’ve always thought that sunflowers were one of the first indicators of fall.  Even though they bloom much sooner in the year, they really seem to shine when the colder weather comes around.  I’ve made this sunny fall card as my inspiration piece for the new challenge at the Sheepski Designs Facebook group.  Of course, the beautiful image is from the Sheepski Designs shop, and is aptly named Sunflowers 🙂  If you wish to purchase this image, or any of the other beautiful ones at Andrea’s shop, please feel free to use this discount code:

I colored the flowers up with my SN markers, and lightly inked the edges with Distress Inks.  With such a bold image, I wanted to keep the embellishments and design to a minimum, so used a simple wood patterned background paper (yay Dollar Store!), some burlap ribbon (yay again Dollar Store!!), and a CTMH stamped sentiment.

I’d like to enter this card in the following:
