Crazy 4 Challenges #19

Happy Saturday!!
It's time for another fun challenge from C4C

This week, our hostess Lori has challenged us to make a birthday card.
Psssssssst...her birthday is Tuesday, so be sure to give her some love!
I used this beautiful sunflower image from ISC and sculpted it to give it lots of dimension:


I colored the flower with Copics. I carefully cut it out, cutting the petals almost to the center. Then, I used a paintbrush handle to curl and form the petals. Finally, I filled the center with Walnut Stain Distress Stickles and sprinkled some brown flocking lightly over it. When it was almost dry, I used a stylus to press divets into the glue to give it that sunflower center appearance. It was so fun! I hope that it makes up for the fact that my card is so simple. I wanted to make a card that I could use for anyone's birthday, whether it a man or a woman, so I kept it simple.

Be sure to drop by C4C to see what the other fabulous designers did this week!
