Beautiful sunflowers

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday. The weather here is lovely and I hope it is with you too.

The challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is now a monthly one and for this month the challenge is "In the Garden". Here is my card  - 
I began by making the backing paper. I cut a 6 inch piece of card and randomly stamped a large sunflower stamp (by Chloe) all over the card. I then coloured the flowers with tulip yellow, sunflower, gold, caramel and umber Promarkers. For the background I used pastel blue and denim Promarkers.
I then trimmed the card to 5and half inches, matted and layered it onto blue centura pearl and yellow core'dinations and attached it to a 6 inch card blank.
The image is Tatty's sunflowers from Tatty Button which I coloured with the following Promarkers - 
  • hair - terracotta, chestnut and burnt umber
  • skin - satin, blush and dusky pink
  • dress and shoes - berry red, crimson and cardinal red
  • sunflower - tulip yellow, sunflower, gold, pear green, pine, holly, caramel and umber
  • tights - soft lime and primrose
  • sky - pastel blue
  • soil - caramel and umber
I cut the image out with scissors and matted it onto a rectangle of blue centura pearl. Then I matted it onto a Spellbinder's branching out die cut in yellow core'dinations. I attached it to the card base with foam pads.
To finish I added a sunflower made using Spellbinder's Die D-lites create a sunflower die set. These are a bit fiddly to make but the results are amazing. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -

Many thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday.
