Sunflowers at Sugar Creek Hollow

Happy Saturday folks! It's a sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and we have a great challenge for you this week.  Create a vintage or shabby chic card using Sunflowers images and theme.  I love sunflowers for their warm colors and the signal of late summer and early fall that they send.  So I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
The Sugar Creek Hollow design team has some amazing cards to show off the Sunflower theme this week, so please take a look at the Sugar Creek Hollow blog to see their beautiful work - it will surely be an inspiration to you.
We will randomly select a winner of the Sunflower challenge who will receive a $15 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie's Boutique on Etsy.  The owner, Linda Coughlin, is an expert of creating cards in the vintage/shabby chic style and has some wonderful things in her Etsy Shop.  Linda is also joining us as a guest designer today.  Her work can be seen here at the Funkie Junkie blog.

This lovely sunflowers are a Hero Arts stamp that I've had for a while.  They were colored with Copics and Stickles added to the centers.  The papers are all from Creative Imaginations. I used the Italian Flourish doily die from Cheery Lynn Designs just behind the image.
I hope this has been an inspiration for you to create your vintage card with sunflowers.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
