Sunflowers for Daring Cardmakers

Those girls over at Daring Cardmakers certainly know how to set a dare - I love doing their challenges because they almost always make me think outside the box. This week the dare is "Sunflowers"
Plain and simple? Yes, except that after I had dug out some yummy Lime Rickey papers by basic grey, and was set to go, I realised that I had lent my 'walk in my garden' Cricut cartridge to my niece. That has a lovely sunflower on it. So I dug out my life's a beach cartridge and there was ...............a SUN. So what could be better, a sunflower made from the sun. I cut a whole sheet then layered them with silicone glue.....

cut some circles from 'george' for the centre, and sprinkled with dew drops by Robin's Nest
The letter stickers are Alphaminis by papermania
Hope everyone has a great weekend

Well done for not giving up on the dare when you realised you didn’t have the right cartridge Enfys, I would have given up there and then, but I’m easily defeated!!

I love your ‘Sun’ flowers, inventive indeed and very bright and sunny, just as they should be!

Jan McConnell said...

Enfys, I am home recuperating from a bad fall where I broke my hip and opening your blog to the sunflower really brightened my day. I had an arrangement at the Rehab Center that had a large beautiful sunflower in it. I had never had one in a flower arrangement before and it was so cheerful. Keep up your creative juices to inspire us all.
