Fall Birthday Bouquet Card

Hello everyone. I am happy you stopped by.  We are having gorgeous fall weather today.  It is bright and sunny, like the card I am sharing today.  I know that some of you are under the threat of the hurricane, so I am thinking of you and hope you stay safe and dry.

(Click on photo to enlarge.)

I need to replenish my birthday card supply because I need to send a bunch soon!  I colored this image with alcohol markers and that was fun. I came up with this easy CAS layout by just picking out scraps of patterned paper that were pretty much already cut like this.  I did add the little corner punching on the rectangle. I love those little punches, they make cards cute.



Supplies: Unity Stamps Struggle and Strength,  Technique Tuesday Little Sentiments, Memento Jet Black Ink, Versafine Olympia Green Ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine Paper pad.

I would love to participate in the following challenge:
The Flower Challenge - Anything Goes (This challenge is brand new!!!)

Hello Heidi:I love how you framed this beautiful bouquet of Sunflowers and how you created the layout for it using your scraps of pattern paper, a great way to use them. I agree, using corner punches is a fabulous way to create beautiful frames for your images.
Thank you for sharing your card with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you join us again soon.
