Lovin' Red

DSCF5187 Today's Ways to Use It Challenge at SCS was to use red in your card.  I needed a get well card for a friend at church, so I pulled out a Sunflower seed packet image I had printed several years ago and thought it would make a cheerful card when paired with some gingham paper from Crafty Secret's Earthy Pack.  My sunflower is from DRS Designs and it is colored with Copics and sponged with Sahara Sand:

This is a large card, made to fit envelopes I got at a yard sale!  The grosgrain and gingham ribbon and Playground button are from SU; paper is Real Red, Basic Black and VWW, and since my MS punch won't punch anything (grrrr) unless it is very lightweight, my scallop is computer paper!  Sentiment is from Flourishes, the violet set I (can't remember the name)!  I also stamped a little on the inside:

The seed packet template was from Katydidcreations, but I cannot get to her website any longer and I see she is sort of missing from the SCS world!  So hopefully someone will know how to contact her so you could download some templates of your own!  Thanks for visiting today!

  10. Just gorgeous LeAnne! I love sunflowers and you've just outdone yourself with your coloring on this one. FYI - I have had some luck getting my stubborn MS punches back into working order by punching a bunch of aluminum foil followed by a bunch of wax paper. I had a rickety picket fence one that I almost tossed but tried this and now it works fine. ~chris

  13. Love this card too. Bright and cheery for the occasion. AND I noticed on the sunflower image it has Marshall, MO. I know right where that is. It's not all that far from me! It's a real place...thought that might be an interesting fact.
