I decided to use both the photo and the sketch. Here is my take:
When I went about making this card this isn't what I was expecting to make. I knew I wanted to do the yellow chevron background but I thought I wanted to do something different for the right side panel. Needless to say, that didn't work out so I tried different patterned paper and nothing was looking right to me. I ended up cutting a piece of white card stock and running it through my texture boutique with a vertical stripe embossing folder. I liked the contrast of the vertical lines with the horizontal lines of the chevron. I die cut a large sunflower and a smaller one along with their centers and leaves. I used a blending tool to add Summer Sunrise ink around the center of the flowers to give them a more natural look. To finish my card, I added the sentiment and a few yellow gems. Thank you for taking the time to come by my blog!
