Today is my friend Sue's birthday (Happy Birthday, Sue!) and I want to share the card I made for her. Hopefully she received it in the mail already. Otherwise, this may spoil the surprise. Sue really loves sunflowers, so I used a great file I have from Jen Adkins Designs (Summer Sunflower). The background paper is from KI Memories. I cut the sunflower out of yellow cardstock and the leaf out of green cardstock and then added pen stitching (Jen already has the lines in the file so you can use your pen tool or cut them as dashed lines). For the center of the sunflower, I used 2 layers of brown embossing puffs on top of the brown cardstock. This stuff is really cool and I like the effect it gives here. I used some brown grosgrain ribbon from my stash on the left edge and tied a cute little bow. The sentiment is stamped using the Amazing You set by K Andrew Designs. Then I added a few clear rhinestones to finish it off. I am very pleased with how it turned out and I hope my friend likes it.
