Curtain Call Sunflower Surprise Reminder Post

CCSept 15 Reminder photo CCSept15picB.jpg

We are half way through the current Sunflower Surprise challenge over at the Curtain Call, and today's post is my second card using this fabulous inspiration picture.

Clearly Besotted Stamps is sponsoring this challenge and I just love their Blooming Marvelous set and matching die set!  Best part, this challenge's Show Stopper will receive these two items as their winner's prize! Worth playing in my books :)

As you can see, sunflowers are front and center on my card - kind of hard to miss LOL.  A bit of burlap as per the table cloth, a bit of green and a wood background.

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Curtain Call Inspirations Challenge and you have until Thursday, September 25th at 8:00 a.m. CST to link up your creation for a chance to win this fabulous set and matching dies from Clearly Besotted Stamps! 

Busy day today as I have to pick my in-laws up from the cruise ship and take them to the ferry, then whip home and get the last minute things prepped for my daughter's birthday party and make sure all runs smoothly from there on in.  I'm thinking there is a nap in my very near future LOL!

Gosh, those are beautiful sunflowers, Marisa, and I really like the added burlap. Wish I could play but heading soon to a football game and then tomorrow my sister arrives..
Happy Birthday to your daughter.

Ah, it's beautiful! I've wanted to do make a card for this challenge since it started! After an unexpectedly busy weekend. Plus, an upcoming week getting ready for a garage sale, I fear I may not get it done!
