Just playing around.... again!

Hi there!  Happy Sunday to you all.  Can you believe it? I have another to share that I made to play along with a challenge and another installment to my DT application to ATS Wednesday Challenge.

One of the reasons why I am choosing to make another card or two for my application is because of one of the requirements is that you have to use a stamp that is sold in the store.  Although I used a CC Designs stamp, when I was making my post the other day, I couldn't find it in the store anywhere.  So I figured Christine must've retired that one.  I want to use one that is in the store, for sure.

The layout for this sketch came from Sketch n Stash.  My stash - the punch from SU! - I don't even remember what it's called.  I remember it coordinating with a stamp set called Spring Bouquet - or maybe that is the name of the punch.

One of my favorite things in the whole world are sunflowers.  No one can look at them and wrinkle their nose.  Sunflowers are just so happy and they are the only flower that seeks the sun and follows it all day.  It's really cool to watch.  When we would travel between Colorado and Missouri, that was always a highlight to the drive - watching the sunflowers as they moved through the day to keep the sun's rays on their flower faces.

Stamps:  Swiss Pixies Birgitta (CC Designs), Mixed Messages (Amy R Stamps)
Ink:  Desert Sand, Rich Cocoa
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Close to Cocoa (SU!), Summer Sunrise (PTI)
Paper:  My stash (unknown)
Tools:  flower punch (SU!), 5/16" circle punch, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots embossing folder
Embellishments:  Summer Sunrise ribbon (PTI)
