Freestyle Fridays

Since we've begun Fall I just had to make a card with a sunflower.  And yes, I've used a retired set.  I got the idea from  I keep a binder with ideas of cards that I've seen here and there and this was an old one.

I started with So Saffron and added a background that I had laying around from another card I made quite some time ago.  It's stamped on Very Vanilla using the French Script background stamp in Early Espresso and sprayed with Gesso to lighten it a little.  I then made two circles using Nestabilities in So Saffron and Very Vanilla.  On the Very Vanilla I stamp the Sunflower from Serene Sunflower in So Saffron.  The center was stamped in Early Espresso.  Using a Q-Tip I added gold Stickles.  The leaves and stems, from the same set, were stamped in White Craft Ink on Early Espresso. It's actually quite shiny in real life.
********REGINA'S MISSION********
Your mission this week Regina is to create a project using a fall theme.  You can make it a card, a basket, a vase, a box, etc.., in any color combination that suits your fancy. And knowing you, it's going to be spectacular.
See Ya Next Week!

Beautiful card, Julie, and so perfect for this time of year! I'm trying to channel my holiday mojo, but I'll see what kind of fall project I can come up with for next week.
