Another Sunday post

Well, no sign of those severe afternoon storms (yet), but I spent some time in the basement this afternoon anyway. Here is the card that I just spent WAY TOO LONG making. I have really struggled the last couple weeks with my card making and I really wanted to make something good. I guess this card would fall into the almost good catagory. I'm not 100% thrilled with it but it is a definite start to getting my mojo back. The sunflower stamp is from The Angel Company and the background is SU's French Script. I colored the sunflower with pencils and OMS and then layered a second flower over the top. The ribbon is SU's chocolate chip taffeta ribbon. This was the first time I have used it and I have to say it is pretty nice. Glitter on the flower petals is Art Institute Lions Mane and the flower center is Martha Stewart Brownstone.

Thanks again for stopping by. I promise there won't be a 3rd Sunday post since I have a movie I want to watch yet tonight. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

The sun has been shining here all day so maybe we will get a break today! This card is so great! I love all of the layers and the glitter. I haven't bought any of the MS products yet. Do you love them? Or are they just ok? The glitter looks mighty fine on this card! Enjoy the movie tonight and give us a review tomorrow, please. I have to update my Netflix queue....Ben has been sabotaging it lately. Kids.
