Sunflowers !

This is a card I've made for an order, it's actually for a man so I've kept the embellishments to a minimum. I've used the sketch over on the Papertake challenge and I'm also putting it in for the Stampavie challenge which is to use some green on your project. The main image is a digi image from the Sketching Stamper which I've shaded with Pro Markers. I've then cut it out with deckle edged Nestabilities and then blended Distress inks Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold around the edge.

The papers are My Minds Eye and the edge punch is a Martha Stewart. The sentiment is done on the PC and I've blended some more Distress inks around the edge. The corner is a Cuttlebug die.
We've had a lovely week end, as we've been away and we stayed close to Lake Vyrnwy in Wales. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, which does make a refreshing change !
Thanks for looking
