Classy Cards-Last Card-Beautiful Sunflowers

I am sad to say this will be my last post for Classy Cards N Such as they are closing on February 29th.    I have certainly  enjoyed working with Beverly and the other team members.

To brighten up the day I decided to make a card with Sunflowers on it.  They are my favorite flowers and I think they are so cheerful looking.

I started my card with a brown card base.  I layered it with red card stock and added a layer of Graphic 45  French Country designer paper.  I really think these color compliment each other and are perfect for a card with a country feel.

I used red card stock to cut the Fleur De Lis Decorative Square.  I used a square die to cut out a window to fit the Heartfelt Creations Sunflower Bouquet behind it.   I stamped two of the images so I could fussy cut the sunflowers from the one to place in the corner.  I shaped the flowers using the Paper Blossom Tool kit.    I colored the images with copics.   I adhered the three sunflowers on the corner of the first image and popped one of them up using a foam square.  I used green card stock to cut the Marianne Anja Leaves 2 to place them under the sunflowers. I used my trusty Memory Box
Willoughby Butterfly Wings to cut the butterflies in the upper corner.  This is the butterfly image that I use most.  I used tear drop pearls to place on the butterfly  and in the corners as the finishing touch to my card.

There is a big sale going on in the Classy Cards Store.  Everything is 43% off.

Thank you for stopping by today.

I entered this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - anything goes
