Gingham Sunflowers

This is an image I have had stamped in my bits box for some time. As I have been tidying up my craft room I thought I had better start to use up some of the items I had already started.

I saw that the  Promarkers challenge this weekend was for a card using gingham so thought I'd enter this card.

It's a very simple card This is what I used.

Moss and Marsh Green Promarkers for the leaves.
I used the new fine tip to enhance the veins on the leaves and found they worked very well for this task.

The flowers were coloured with Gold and Apricot Promarkers  with
 Burnt Sienna and Apricot for the centres.

The image is backed, first onto a piece of green gingham card and then with a flower border square made with a Martha Stewart round the page punch - a small green gingham bow from my stash was added in the corner - and that's it.

Sorry but I can't remember where the stamp came from - if anyone recognises it I'd love to know!

I love sunflowers, they are one of my favourite flowers and I remember growing them when I was a little girl. They seemed to be enormous then but I don't expect they were - it was me who was smaller back then .............
in every way. lol

Hope you like this effort.
