Thinking of You

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for
It's our Photo Week and Maria as Host has chosen
this gorgeous image.

Here's my take on that beautiful sunflower.

I love using corrugated cardboard on my cards and 
I though this an opportune time to do so here.
I started with my sunflower  from
STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches and 
heat embossed in white then coloured it with
Tim's Distress Fossilized Amber
Carved Pumpkin and Gathered Twigs
with Lindy's Mission Bells Brown
for the centre.
I had the embossed card stock on my desk
and thought it would suit so mopped up the
leftover colours from the sunflower to add to the background. 
The corrugated cardboard was also done with the leftovers.
Diecut some Kaisercraft and Carta Bella leaves.
made a big bow from jute string adding a
coloured cabachon also on my desk.
Popped my sunflower and
finished with my SU sentiment.

Head on over and see what out Guest Janet
and the Team created and come join us in our Gallery. 
Love to see you there.

Your multi-media training has served you well, Ina. This is fabulous with all its layers, especially that corrugated paper.

Love the embossed background mixed with the cardboard! Such a great job bringing the outdoor elements to inspire us.

I am totally loving this gorgeous design! I love that background that you mopped up the color on and the sunflowers, jute and leaves layered on to that cardboard strip is absolutely perfect.

Once again, your mixed media/collage card has be dazzled! You truly have an eye for design and for seeing possibilities in things I'd never consider using! Corrugated cardboard: brilliant! Love this!

Beautiful card Ina! Love the corrugated piece and the background (and of course the sunflower!).
