Mello Yellow Sunflower

We're starting another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week and our theme is Mello Yellow!  Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish, who also provided the DT with all the images.  Come on over and join in on the challenge for your chance to win a wonderful prize package from Robyn's Fetish and also see the fabulous creations by the design team.

I used this big bold sunflower from Robyn's Fetish for my card and moved leaves around on this until I was blue in the face!  I printed out the image a couple of times, colored it in Copics, and then separated the leaves from the flower.  No matter where I put the leaves then they looked a little wonky.  The background paper is from Doodle Bug Design and the sentiment was in a Simon Says Stamp kit.  I mounted the sentiment on a strip of burlap and then added the twine.

UPDATE on the bridal shower invitations!  Believe it or not, I finally finished all of them - and never want to see another one as long as I live!  Mass production is not my cup of tea I don't guess.  Too boring!  I'll post a picture of one of the cards tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping by.........and be sure and check out Tuesday Throwdown this week and enter our challenge.

This is a beautiful card Lynn and I love how you have colored that big beautiful sunflower!! I think your leaves look great but I can relate to moving things around trying to get them to look right. But I'm telling you the leaves don't look wonky now! Now I have to tell you like I told Carol, this mellow yellow stuff has brought back all kind of memories to me. lol Remember the mellow yellow song?? And the mellow yellow drink??? Am I dating myself?!! lol Hugs, Brenda

A beautiful sunflower and I think a perfect placement of leaves! I love that bright sunny background and the burlap and twine that I think are so perfect with sunflowers!

MaryH said...

Mmm-Good. Brillant sunflower and your leaves don't look wonky to me. I like the way one of them edges off the white base. Also loving the digi yellow paper and your touch of the twine & burlap were perfect with the rustic sunflower. Another great design, carried out beautifully. Very summery. TFS & Hugs
