Thinking summer!

Hello and welcome to my blog!
has some lovely images that bring summer days to mind.
And what is more summery than flowers?

I have 2 cards to show you today.
This first card was made with
"Daffodils" (#83303)
I stamped it onto white cardstock and colored it with FlexMarkers
then layered it onto the card.
I know daffodils are more of a spring flower, so I also made this next card.

I used 3 stamps on this card.
First, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" (#36314) sentiment onto cardstock.
I then stamped it again onto a scrap, cut it out and used it as a mask as I
stamped "Babys Breath" (#35111) randomly onto the cardstock.
I used "Large Sunflower" (#35804)  and stamped it twice onto the brown patterned paper and twice onto white cardstock.
I fussy cut one white and both brown flowers, cutting off the smaller petals on one brown one.  I layered the flowers onto each other.  I cut the center of the 2nd white flower and colored it with a FlexMarker then adhered it to the center of the flower.
Once I added the Sunflower to the card and curled the petals up a bit,
 it was finished.

I hope you have gotten some inspiration from my cards today.
Biblical Impressions has many wonderful images that can be combined or used alone.  Stop in to the Biblical Impressions store and see all the wonderful stamps they have to offer.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a comment if you will

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

I like your use of the silhouette image for the background, it goes great with that big flower.
