As usual for my card, this card was inspired by several challenges. First of all, I was inspired by the great sketch and inspiration photo over at Viva la Verve. It's already week 3 of September, my contributions to weeks 1 and 2 are here and here. I loved the inspiration photo with the wooden table and sunflowers. I was also inspired by the Friday Mashup where the challenge is to use vellum and/or stitching (real or faux). I managed to get both into this card. I don't use faux stitching very often, but when I do, I always like the effect but I seem to need a reminder to use it. Last but not least I was inspired by Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where the theme is Tag it, which worked perfectly with the sketch.
I stamped the sunflowers in Chocolate Chip. There is a stamp that is supposed to fill in the colour in the sunflowers, but I couldn't make the yellow bright enough, so I decided it was a case for the Blendabilites. They are perfect for a bit of Friday chillaxing. Some good music on Spotify, maybe a bit of good chocolate and lots of colouring, and you feel completely refreshed and ready for the weekend.
