On vacation this summer, while taking a bus tour through  Romania on the way to the Danube Delta, we passed several seemingly endless fields of sunflowers. Apparently sunflower oil is one of their major products. Anyway, when I recently got the coordinating dies to the PTI Autumn Abundance set, I couldn’t wait to pull out the sunflower image and play with it. And this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge was just the way to use it.

sunflowers1 The blue printed papers are from the Teresa Collins Every Day Moments pad, and the golden print is from Studio Calico’s Memoir pad. The greeting is from the PTI Communique Curves Sentiments set. The white self-adhesive lace trim finishes it off perfectly. And of course, the image is colored with Copic markers.

Here’s another one I made last week using the same image (I cut and colored both at the same time).

sunflowers2 I know I used another card or sketch as inspiration for this one, but darned if I can remember where I saw it! If I find it, I’ll be sure and come back to give credit. Anyhow, same golden paper from the Studio Calico’s Memoir pad. The greeting, I’m pretty sure, is from another PTI set, and the satin ribbon is also PTI. I really need to tack those ribbon strips down so they stay in place!

Enjoy your Sunday!
