Crafty Ann's Challenge - Let the Sunshine In


This week I have the honor of being a guest designer at Crafty Ann's. When I heard the challenge was Let the Sunshine In, I immediately thought of bright sunny colors....yellow, orange, and red. Ann designed this wonderful digi flower which I printed and colored 3 times and cut them all out and curled the edges and then layered them with foam dimensionals to give it the appearance of a real flower. The flowers and leaves were colored with Martha Stewart markers and a dove blender. The middle of the flower I created using little beads and glossy accents to give the flower another texture. One of the layers of paper was punched with the Martha Stewart scallop punch...another was embossed with the Cuttlebug spots and dots folder. I added a couple of brads, some bling, and a sheer ribbon to finish it off. Ann is offering a prize of two digi stamps and one backing paper of choice for the lucky winner at Crafty Ann's ! So come on over and Let the Sunshine In!


I am entering this card into a few of other appropriate challenges:
