You are My Sunshine

Hello everyone!  I got some new stamps this week.  (Shhhhh, they are not Stampin' Up!!!  Don't tell on me.)  I wanted some stamps with flowers.  I really don't have enough in my inventory. I'm sure my darling husband would disagree!  Naw, he doesn't really care.  Anyway, I was on SplitCoast Stampers and saw something that guided me to Flourishes website and I decided on the Sunflowers. Here is my card. I hope you like it.
I was happy the way this turned out.  Of course, everything else I used on the card was Stampin' Up.  I have been dying to use the big wide ribbon and now I have finally used it, YAY!  Here is my recipe:
      Stamps:  Sunflowers, Set #105 by Flourishes
      Ink:        Early Espresso, various SU Markers
      Paper:    Early Espresso, Old Olive, watercolor paper
      Other:     1 1/4" wide grosgrain ribbon, Early Espresso
This stamp is the second smallest sunflower.  There is a bigger one that I think I might do next.  I have been enjoying the watercoloring aspect of it as well.  Also, I noticed that I have been gravitating toward fall colors.  Hmmm, I must be subconsciously wishing for Fall!  It could be because here in Virginia, we have been having fall like weather.  I even saw a few trees starting to change their leaves, woohoo!  I love fall around here!

Anyway, that's all for me today.  I hope you have a great day!
