Julia's Sunflower Posy

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background on this one, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Leafy Quad Embossing Folder. I added CS Golden Sand Glitter Kiss lightly all over. I matted onto Black Card and then onto Coconut White Card.

I cut the Linear Leaf Background into a piece of Coconut White Card. I added a piece of CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to the back. I turned it over and added CS Golden Sand Polished Silk Glitter to the exposed adhesive. I matted onto Black Card and added to my background using CE Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the CE Julia's Sunflower Posy onto a piece of Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the CE Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set. I added CS Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I coloured in using CS Pixie Powders - I used Straw Yellow, Bronze Blush and Pale Olive. I also used Bright Sunshine CS Phill Martin Ink Spray Mist on the basketweave on the image. I cut it out using the largest die in the Julia Die Set.

I cut some flowers and leaves out of Coconut White Card using the Sunflower Bouquet Die Set. I painted then with Pixie Powders - Pale Olive on the leaves, Straw Yellow on main part of the flower and Bronze Blush on the Centres of the flowers. I shaped them a little and added them to the corners of my card.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to the left hand corners.
