The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use a frame from one of the Cricut image sets. I picke the sunflower frame from Stretch Your Imagination.
I used paper from the Core'dinations whitewash collection for the frame and the flowers. The sunflower is from the Art Nouveau cartridge (one of my favorites). To add some more interest to the flower I cut some petals from the Flower Shoppe set and put them on top of the flower. They are curled a bit to add some dimension.
The frame is popped up on foam tape. I also used an embossing stylus to add some veins to the leaves. The leaves are all made from random scraps from my stash. I really need to do that more often. I used Recollections solid color card stock for the two blue pieces. The brighter yellow has a metallic element and is from the Paper Company.
Here is a link to the Design Space file if you would like to recreate this card (or any part of it). Have a great day!
