CAS Thinking of You

I used a couple of challenges for this card. The first was the color challenge over at Stamp TV. The colors of the week were kraft, yellow, brown, and red. The other challenge was the Fall to Layout sketch from the Clean and Simple Blog. I just love fall and sunflowers, and these colors were perfect for a fall card. I tried to grow sunflowers in my garden this summer and the birds (I'm assuming the birds) kept eating all of the seeds before they could grow. So out of all of the seeds I planted 1 sunflower plant came up and bloomed. HA, it looks pretty funny in the garden!! :) Anywho, I used Gina K's sets Happy Harvest and Summer Harvest for this card. I colored the focal image with copic markers, edged it with a Martha Stewart border punch, and added some SU brown paper to the sides. The sentiment was made by punching out SU designer label punch in red, 1 1/8 inch circle in brown, SU oval punch for the phrase, and after these were all adhered together I added some bronze brads.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super week!
