I have made a card today that follows the sketch from Case This Sketch Challenge #316.  The sketch is one that Brian King created.  So of course I had to play along.


Painted Harvest, 144783


And here is the sketch I CASED.


I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I am going back through annual catalog stamp sets.  This has always been one of my favorites.  The Panted Harvest stamp set is so versatile with the sunflower.  It makes gorgeous wreaths as well.  But today I went with a sunflower.  That is something that can easily stand alone.

I used the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper for a part of the background. For the top section I made my own background by stamping a leaf from the same stamp set.  It is Pear Pizzaz stamped onto Pear Pizzaz card stock.  I love the look that gives.  I also used the Layering Circles for the center scallop and plain circle.  The sentiment is punched with a 3/4″Circle Punch.  Just to add a bit more texture, I added the linen thread beneath the flower layer.  I hope that thread never goes away.  It is perfect when just a touch of texture or ribbon is needed.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back on Monday for some new projects.  I have a card swap with my Stamp Club on Sunday.  So I will share the cards I have made for that next week.
