Country Flowers

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... C for Country Flowers
My card features an adorable Penny Black image from the "Garden Critters" stamp set! It's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  To create the sunflowers I used the CB Spring flowers die and the fence was cut with the MB Country Fence die.  I use a MS punch for the tiny butterflies and a EK Success die for the corners. The papers are from Doodlebug Design & The Paper Studio and for the distressing I used Vintage Photo distress ink.

I've been on a yellow kick lately... my last few cards have included some shade of yellow! I think it's one of my favorite colors to work with and I love how bright and happy this card turned out!  Maybe spring is just around the corner!! :)

Well, that's it for today... thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a
wonderful weekend!
