Sunflowers (with a difference)

The other stamp set I got from Wild Frog this month is the subject of this post. One of those "got to have" stamps. For me anyway. I luurve frogs (among other things). So this stamp was destined for my collection. I decided to go bright and colourful on these.

Coloured with promarkers with DI to highlight. Mounted onto gold miri. The sentiment from TLC. Again mounted onto gold miri. I followed this weeks sketch over at Outlawz this week.
The corners have been cut out with a MS corner punch, moved in a bit, to reveal the red base CS. Some gold fine line peel offs were used to give the illusion of more gold miri.

The second card features ladybirds. again bold and bright.

This time in the shape of a shaped easel card. The sentiment again from TLC.
I followed the recipe over at Desert Island Crafts. The challenge is to use at least 3 from a list. Challenge #5's list is
1. Ribbon
2. Glitter
3. Birthday theme
4. Bow
5. Dots
6. Pearls
7. Child image
8. Balloons image
9. Bright colors
10. Easel card technique

I have chosen ribbon, bow, bright colours, and easel card technique, so 4 of the options here.
The layers are a brayered paper using yellow into orange, orange CS onto green CS. The ribbon and bows are yellow organza. This also adds some glitter to the card! I covered the lone ladybird that is on the stamped image with a ladybird button to make it standout.
