Funny Sunflower by The Paper Shelter


Our Midweek Throwdown challenge for today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps is to make an "Any Occasion" card.  I've been working on cards for OWH's Spring Thaw card drive, there isn't much time left to get our cards in, the deadline to be in your shippers hands is 5 days away.  Thank heaven for Priority Mail! 

For my card I used a cute pre-colored digital image by The Paper Shelter called Funny Sunflower.  The layout is a sketch from Splitcoast Stampers SC#314.  It's been a wonderful mass production tool!  The papers are Neenah Solar White, Via Lemon, Basic Black and the dotted paper was printed on my computer.  I have a black and white polka dot digital paper and I keep "re-coloring" it the color I need.  I also used a Sizzix embossing folder on the white panel, the sentiment is stamped from a Verve Visual set. 

Challenges:
Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps - Any Occasion Cards
All Sorts Challenge - Inspired By Nature 
Crafty Creations - At The Bottom Of My Garden Lives... 
City Crafter - Nothing To It 
Creative Cottage - Fabulous Florals 
Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes
