Hi, Janja here!

Tuesday is already here and my time for post on the Scrapping Cottage blog.
Beautiful sunflower heads are proudly displaying their beauty and invite our eyes to admire. This inflorescence composed of hundreds or thousands of tiny flowers simply deserve our admiration.

Today on a thank you card.

- CottageCutz dies: Thanks Phrase, Sunflowers, Wheat Stalks, Pilow Box Plus (ladybug)
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm), folded
- kraft cardstock: 5 x 5" (12,7 x 12,7 cm)
- watercolor paper
- Distress oxide pads: Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo
- Distress ink pads: Wild Honey, Vintage Photo, Twisted Citron
- ColorBox pigment ink pad Frost White
- stamp with handwriting for background
- glue

From watercolor paper cut out elements for sunflowers. Color them with Distress oxide pads. Sprinkle with water and shape with a flower shaping tool.

Cut out Thanks phrase, some wheat stalks and ladybug.
Trim kraft cardstock. Stamp on it handwriting with a white pigment ink pad. Nothing serious if we cannot evenly cover the entire background as the focus is on sunflowers. 

Use only the sunflower leaves. Cut off the stems with scissors. Glue each flower separately on the background and arrange them with leaves and wheat stalks. 
Finally glue Thanks phrase and attach a ladybug for luck on it.

Memorial Day Sale going on now at the

Thank you for coming over and have a lovely day.

ooh, I love it! I've got those sunflowers in my wishlist after I saw Anita's card. This just fueled the fire. (BTW, I had an October wedding and had sunflowers in my bouquet - though they were orange. Possibly dyed - it was a supermarket bouquet. LOL)
