Card Creating Tuesday - A Sunflower Card

Looking for the Abusive Relationship Awareness blog hop? Click here

I'm back with my second DT creation for My Cricut Craft Room. As a part-time design team member, I create a project every other week to share. Today's card creating theme is to create a card featuring a sunflower.

This is by far one of my favorite cards I've created recently. I love the bold colors and its simplicity. I love being happy with the final turn out of my cards! Normally they end up looking completely different from how I originally picture them.

What I Used To Make The Card
- Yellow, gold, and white cardstock, along with the black polka dot background paper
- Stretch Your Imagination cartridge (the sunflower is cut at 2.5")
- Destinations cartridge (the white circle behind the sunflower is cut at 3")
- 'hello' sentiment with black ink
- Black rhinestones
- White ribbon
- Cuttlebug embossed bolder with a white gel pen to highlight the embossing

Make sure to stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what other fabulous sunflower cards have been created! In case you haven't heard...
