Tweeded Sunflower

The Card Concept Challenge # 2 Texture

Happy Friday!
I am at home today due to some icy roads in Austin today...yes!  Some crafting has taken place.
It's kinda crazy when the temps are 25 F one day and and expected high of 70 tomorrow!  I will take it, no complaints here :))

I created this card for The Card Concept Challenge #2.  We are to create using texture  and as you can clearly see, I was also inspired by the colours in the inspiration photo.  I created the Spellbinder die cut sunflower with some linen textured card stock and I cut one each of the two sizes and layered onto each other.  I used an outdoor fabric swatch to cut out the tweeded center and I also cut out a narrow ring from a woodgrain card stock scrap.  The leaves are also cut with a die (My Favorite Things) out of shimmery green card stock.  Everything was placed on this white woodgrain card stock that I bought at a local paper store.  I am thinking that this card falls into the Clean and Layered category...or maybe the Clean and Simple?

Thanks for taking a peek today...I sure do appreciate you all!

  4. Simply beautiful!! Sometimes less is definitely more!

  5. That is a roller coaster weather ride you are experiencing! I absolutely love this flower, Chriss, and all the texture you achieved!! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Beautifully done, Chriss! Your tweed flower center is right up my alley-LOVE all of that texture. And goodness, paper that has an already woodgrain embossed texture?! Love it! I am so glad you got to stay inside and stamp so you could join us this week. Enjoy your warmer temps!

  7. I sure wish my local stamp store sold that great woodgrain paper...that was the perfect base for your pretty card. I love all the texture you created...the tweed center...fabulous! You really embraced the created texture all over your card!

  8. That woodgrain background paper is gorgeous and your flower beautiful.Thank you so much for joining us at the Card Concept!
