OSAAT Challenge # 231 - "Anything Goes ..... Birthdays"

Good afternoon to you all.  Sorry I'm being such a bad blogger right now.  Life seems to be a bit hectic at the moment and I am also involved with a project with our WI group which has a deadline.

Anyway, I'm here with a card for One Stitch At A Time. The challenge is "Anything Goes ..... Birthdays", so this is a nice easy one.  My card features Sunflowers from Barb Jenson which can be found at our sponsor Stitchy Bears Digital Outlet

My Card

7" square card - AnnaMarie Designs
Pearlescent cardstock - Create and Craft (bought at Wilko's)
Yellow backing paper - very old stash
Ribbon - Offray
Dies - Floral Ovals from Spellbinders
Sentiments - JustRite Grand Sentiments
Damask embossing folder - Couture Creations
Coloured with Promarkers
Pearls from stash

This card was a nice easy one to put together.  I thought the different shades of yellow suited the sunflower.The tiny yellow sunflower I found stuck to something else (as happened to me recently ... lol!) which I used months ago so I decided to pop it onto the centre of the bow.  I used the smallest die from Floral Ovals and just stamped a tiny sentiment onto each one.

I hope you decide to join us in the challenge this time.  If you pop across to OSAAT you can see some inspiration from the DT and this is the prize you could win. 

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
