Dimensional Sunflower

Happy Monday to you all! Another week is on its way and I've either come down with a cold or allergies. My nose is turning red and sore from all this blowing. But I got inky this afternoon and evening and had some fun with some new goodies. I won a Prizm from Scrapbook and Cards Today and Spellbinders.  Not only did they send me the Prizm but they also sent several dimensional flower dies and the Tool 'n One. So I had some time this afternoon to break out the goodies and have some fun.

I was very impressed with the Prizm and will be using it on the go. Very light weight and easy to use. You can't use bigger dies in it; the biggest die it would cut would be 2.5 inches. But it die cut everything on this card. The flower is Create a Sunflower by Spellbinders. I die cut 10 of each size of petal, 4 leaves, 4 bases and one center. I inked all the petals with Fossilized Amber distress ink and inked the leaves with Iced Spruce. I curled each of the petals and then added them to the bases, and finally stacked the bases together and added the center. The flower is gorgeous! I added the leaves to the flower and then also added more leaves from Spellbinders Foliage die set. The background is inked with Distress Oxide inks: Peacock Feathers and Fossilized Amber. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Essential Sentiments and die cut with MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. I hope you like this as much as I do! Thank you Spellbinders and Scrapbook and Cards Today for my new goodies.

Although I'd love to try out the other flowers, I have to get back to wedding stuff. We are almost 1 month away from the big day and I still have 12 centerpieces to do as well as finish up 64 tags to go with the favors for the rehearsal dinner. Sooo,,, high-ho, high-ho, it's back to work I go. LOL! I am entering these challenges with tonight's card.

That's it for me tonight. I want to get rid of this cold or whatever so I can go play with the twins on Wednesday. They shared so much sickness with me this year. I really don't want them to catch anything from me. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

What a pretty flower it made. You did good Donna. Very nice layout of the sunflower also. The color around it add to it nicely. Not sure i would have the patience for doing it.

Wow! You have really done this die justice! You created so much gorgeous depth and dimension here and the colors are just right! I also like the way you added some subtle color blending in the background. Great touch with using two different colors of green for the leaves, too. I'm so glad you shared such a stunning creation with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
