Clearly Besotted Stamps is our fabulous sponsor for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sunflower Surprise!

  Stephanie Wincott, owner of Clearly Besotted Stamps generously provided Blooming Marvellous Stamps and Die Collection for our challenge today!

Clearly Besotted Stamps is offering a wonderful prize to our Sunflower Surprise LEAD, too...Marvellous Blooms Stamps and Die Collection!

Here is my card using these fabulous supplies...


I scored the background every 1/2" with my score board (linked below) and then stamped the sentiment.  Then I layered that up on the white card base and added in some twine ribbon.  I attached the sunflower and leaves with some foam tape.

Check out all of this amazing inspiration...
