Shabby Sunflowers



Who said Sunflowers can't be pink? I have seen a few in my day... okay they may have been altered with some fancy system but they looked awesome and this is a paper flower so anything goes. hee hee  Happy Friday and did you see the newest digi release called Sunflower Power? Oh my... This months challenge is all about Shabby Chic and well lets face it, that is NOT my style at all. However stepping out of the normal is a good idea so I gave it a try. How did I do? Someone asked if I could make my creations larger on the posts and I thought sure. Now you can see it even better, right? Maybe that isn't such a good thing? LOL  Kidding! I will try to remember to do this and I have changed a few of the last posts. Anyways....


Lots of distressing, a little bit of lace trim and ribbon along the corner. I have softer muted colors (well for me that is) and some buttons and a twine bow. Do you think it passes for this challenge?   My Sunflower is actually popped up and cut between the leaves to add dimension to them. I think if you click on the picture it enlarges it for you to see what I mean. I added some vellum fish tales to the edges and voila! Hope you can play along this month. This was also created for the fabulous DTGD Challenge of Sandee and Cheryl's. No.... I can't get enough of Cheryl's challenge.  ;-) Have a wonderful day!

Oh, Stacy, this is GORGEOUS! I love the pink sunflower (and after all, they are yours color as you wish)! And, oh, how I love how you've added dimension by cutting and adding another layer...I did that for my card earlier this week and changed my mind. I love yours! And shabby it is! I love the DP and your distressing, and the sweet shabby embellishments. Sweet card, my friend! You rocked this one...and I guess I'm going to try it. I rarely do shabby, but I can try, right? Ha! Hugs, and I hope you are continuing to enjoy a birthday celebration through the whole weekend!

OOOH Stacey, this is shabby chic for sure! Love everything from the layered sunflower (oh and btw, love the colour!) to all the distressing, lace and buttons. I've come back a few times looking at this. For not being your style this is gorgeous!!!
