Fusion - Sunflowers

Happy Thursday!  Lots going on here today!  A new challenge at Fusion and CASE Study, and a new Waltzingmouse release!  I hope you'll take some time and look around!    This post is for the new Fusion Challenge called "Sunflowers".  Seriously... isn't this the perfect time of year for this?  Sunflowers just seem perfect for fall.  I even have a few sunflowers in my yard!   I usually cut the heads off when they start drooping and hand them in the garage to dry.  Some of the seeds will get planted next year, and the rest will keep the birds happy and fed over the winter. 

Remember that when you play at Fusion you can use the photo inspiration or the sketch.  If you are feeling clever you can put them together like I did here. 

I love this sunflower die from Poppystamps - it's so detailed.  I cut it out in three different colors of card stock.  The October Afternoon paper adds a country feel to the image and the blue and yellow go together so well!  Want to see what the rest of the ladies made for today?  Just click on their names here to jump to their blogs.  I know you'll be glad you did.


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Beautiful--love the sunflower die and how you used two shades of yellow! The polka dots and plaid create such a wonderful background. I adore that single blue button for an accent!
