GDP154 Sunflower Gratitude

Hi peeps!  Happy Wednesday!  I have still been playing with the Many Blessings set that is available today in the new Holiday catalog!  Yesterday I colored my image with Blends; today, I stamped my image with Stazon ink so I could do some loose watercoloring!  Check it out:

I used the Global Design Project sketch for my layout:

I knew I wanted to use the sunflowers from the Many Blessings set, but I was struggling to find DSP that would fit the colors I wanted; I checked the new Festive Farmhouse papers and there was a lovely Mossy Meadow stripe that worked perfectly!  I stamped and watercolored my flower image on watercolor paper, then diecut it:

Next, I stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings on a panel of Crushed Curry.  I ran it through the Subtles EF, and added a little strip of Mossy Meadow for the horizontal panel.  Can you see the little sunflowers I stamped on there as well?  So cute!

My final touch was a little banner of retired Mossy Meadow ribbon and some of the new Festive Farmhouse Cotton get three colors and one of them just happens to be Mossy Meadow!  It's nice and soft and made a great little bow:

It is so stinkin' hot here, it's nice to stamp something fall-ish, even if the weather outside doesn't feel that way!  

Here's another cute photo from the wedding; this is my nephew Timmy (he's the brother of the bride as well as the contractor who did our addition) and his wife, Allyson; Timmy withstood the rain for a little while but rather than get an unmanly umbrella, opted for camouflage raingear!  Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Thanks for popping in--enjoy your day and be blessed!

These colors were the colors of my bridesmaids and matron of honor back in your card! What beautiful smiles your family has. It is so hot and humid here and rains almost every day. I prefer that over snow, ice and cold though. Have a blessed day.

So sorry I have not been commenting as things have been kinda crazy here. Your card today is absolutely gorgeous, LeAnne! I love this Many Blessings set and the variety of holidays it can be used for. Your coloring with the Blends is perfect and I love the design! TFS I am praying this gross (hot & humid) weather soon leaves us for cooler more Fall like weather!

I like that pretty little vase of sunflowers surrounded by all of that wonderful mossy green! This is a pretty late summer card!
