Sunflowers

Hi there ... How's your week going?

Are you ready for a new challenge at Papercraft Star?
As you know our challenges are all Photo Inspiration and this week we have such a lovely photo


This is just so pretty and summery ...

That lovely hat reminds me of one my Dad bought for me one Easter ... I was about 4 or 5 and it had a bunch of red cherries, flowers and a big red ribbon that trailed down the back ... I loved that hat ...

But it was the sunflowers that grabbed my attention here ... and this is my card


I used the sunflower image from The Graphics Fairy and printed different sizes ... some of which I 'flipped' ... If you want you can see a video tutorial I did Here on changing the graphics


I hand cut them out and popped them in a jar which I printed onto acetate and backed with DP ... I wanted the jar to look like glass


My lovely team mates have some fabulous projects to inspire you this week ... hop over to the blog and take a look ... 
You have until next Tuesday 12.01 am US Pacific time to add your link - I hope you will join us

Have a beautiful Day

The hat reminds you of your Dad... the sunflowers remind me of mine: he planted some just a few weeks ago and will let them "grów until Christmas, to have instead of poinsettias" :-) Your card is gorgeous - and such an unsual format for you! Love the jar in particular!

What a beautiful card. I just love sunflowers. Your Jar really does look glass like. I love how you did that. We have a bunch of wild sunflowers growing where we are staying right now. Before we leave I would love cut a couple and put them in a jar.

Hugs~
