Sunflowers- Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone,

Just popping in with a quick post today. 

Just Add Ink has it's first ever inspiration challenge this week and I just had to play along. Here is the gorgeous picture for inspiration.

As soon as I saw this beautiful sunflower and the stunning colours the idea for my card popped into my head. I knew I just had to ink up the 'Every Moment' stamp set and watercolour using Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso. I wanted my card to be more than just yellow and brown though so used Marina Mist and Kraft to mix it up a bit. The layout for this card was inspired by the lovely swap card my gorgeous friend Sarah-Jane Kale (**Hi SJ xx**) made for our recent team day. Here is my card:
Project Recipe
Stamp sets:      Every Moment; Curly Cute
Ink:                    Daffodil Delight; Early Espresso; Pear Pizzazz: White gel pen
Card/Paper:      Kraft; Marina Mist; Early Espresso; Daffodil Deligh DSP; Marina Mist DSP; Watercolour paper
Accessories:     Marina Mist Satin Ribbon; 1-3/4" Circle Punch; Scallop Circle Punch; Corner rounder punch

I do hope you like my card. I have to say I really like it. It makes me feel happy and cheerful. Let me know what you think.

I'll be popping back again tonight or tomorrow to post a card for a special little girl who is turning 4.
