Sunflower - Thinking of You

Friends of mine have lost both of their Moms within the last month.  I wanted to send them a card to let them know that I am thinking of them.


One week end I had been playing with this sunflower stamp from Penny Black and experimenting with my coloring.  The coloring is done with watercolor pencils, distress inks and distress paints.  I learned lots from my coloring but at least I had one image I could use - actually two.  I used another image for the inside of the card.


The sentiment and banner are from Simon Says.

I am going to enter this card in three challenges.

Wednesday - Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes

Sunday - AAA Cards - Watercolor


Monthly - Penny Black and More November  Anything Goes

Have a wonderful Sunday - I hope you find some time to create.
