Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge--Sunflower Surprise


Are you ready for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge?  This week's theme is Sunflower Surprise:


We have another wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge:  Clearly Besotted Stamps has provided each of the Design Team members with the Blooming Marvellous stamp set and coordinating dies, and they are offering these beautiful stamps and dies as a prize for this week's LEAD, as well!



This gorgeous sunflower doesn't need much embellishment, so I kept my design simple to show it off.  I die cut the flower and leaves from Oatmeal cardstock and stamped the corresponding images, then embellished the flower center with a chocolate button and some twine.

The kraft card base is debossed with a woodgrain texture, though it's hard to see in the photos.  Just a little bit of added texture to jazz up a simple design.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Kraft, Oatmeal), Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip)
Patterned paper:  Echo Park (A Boy's Life)
Stamps:  Clearly Besotted Stamps (Blooming Marvellous)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  Clearly Besotted Stamps (Blooming Marvellous dies), Papertrey Ink (woodgrain impression plate)
Other:  May Arts (twine), button

I hope you'll visit my Curtain Call teammates to see their amazing creations this week!  Stop by the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog for links and to add your entry to the gallery.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a fantastic day!
