Sending Some Sunshine - May the Wings

Sending healing wishes to my baby sister. Thought a giant sunflower would put a smile on her face.

I top folded the white card (8.5"w x 4"h including overhang of flower).

eCut an extra large (approx 8.5"w) coneflower (from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store HERE). ps could have used the sunflower, but forgot I had that eCut file sigh... Alzheimer's moment... Colored the flower while on the mat with Distress mini pads, then sponging color. Removed from mat and cut off part of the cone head using a jagged cut to give a flatter look to the flower head. Adhered to card front. Added seeds to the flower head with a black marker.

Used an alphabet stamp set (Hero Arts "Happy Letters") to stamp the word "sunflower" using the mini pads inked with "Mowed Lawn" and clear embossed. Wrote in the words "sending u some sunshine" using a micron pen.

On the inside stamped the flower & bud (Stampendous Jumbo "Sunflower"), again using the mini pads, misting with water and stamping. Stamped the butterfly (Quietfire Design "Butterflies/Dragonflies" 7pce set) with "Worn Lipstick" and clear embossed.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "May the Wings" 5pce set) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
