Tanya *Day 5*

Well, I'm sad to say that this is our last inspiration card by Tanya. But know that you can see lots more of her newest and cutest cards on her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM. I am a total sucker for sunflowers and Tanya's card is sunflower PERFECTION! It is bright, happy, and fun. And aren't those cute lady bugs the perfect finishing touch? Oh, and that background paper is lovely with the bold yellow color of Tanya's flower.
Here's my take:
I began by stamping the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring them with colored pencils. I then distressed the entire center panel and embossed background with a light layer of Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. All stamps Hero Arts.

Thanks so much to everyone for stopping by this week! See you tomorrow with POD card! :)

Now I want some sunflowers! Gorgeous card! I know a lady here in town who grows huge sunflowers in her garden. I'm going to have to make a trip to her house soon:)
