Sunflower Splendor

Hello 🙂  The weather is getting cooler here, and it’s really starting to feel like fall.  When I was a child, I can remember waiting for the sunflowers to be ready to pick, and when they were, I would grab the big flower, twisting them, as I pretended they were a steering wheel that I was driving 🙂 Then, it would be a feast, straight from the plant.

The card I have today is featuring a beautiful sunflower image from Power Poppy.  It’s a digital stamp, called Sunflower Power.  I printed it very light, so I could color it with my Prismacolor pencils on kraft paper in the “no line” method.  I added a faint script stamp accent in the inked background and distressed the edges before layering it with a piece of brown CS, some cheesecloth (I love that stuff!), and a background that I made by stamping a large flourish corner, and heat embossing with a pearl powder for a subtle effect.  I added a few die cut branches and some brown pearls to balance the design.

I’d like to enter this into:
