Tilda with Sunflower
This is one of my new Magnolia stamps called Tilda with Sunflower. I love sunflowers so I have had my eye on this one for a while. I love this green paper and even though it isn't sunflowers I kind of liked it for this stamp. The orange is pumpkin pie and the yellow is card stock I picked up at a scrapbook store so it doesn't fit any of the Stampin' Up colors. It is a "cool" (as in the warm or cool tones) yellow though. I didn't get the name of the patterned paper. I punched the butterflies out of some pretty orange mulberry paper, it has a nice texture for the butterflies. I put some diamond glaze on the sunflower to give it a little umphh. Wanting to keep my cards simple I once again used layers of cardstock as the interest rather than lots of paper flowers or brads or gemstones, etc.
Hope you like it and I hope you are having a nice Memorial Day holiday. I am thinking of my dad who was in WWII and has now been deceased almost 17 years. God bless those who have fought for our country!
