Sunshine and sunflowers

Goodmorning!  It's time for my progressive challenge post for the great freebie over at Outlaws.  Oh my how fast do 2 weeks go.... but since I really love their digis I just have to find some time in my busy weekend to color up some images lol then I only have to do the card in the week.  It's easier to just assemble then to try and color and assemble during a weeknight.

So this time I used the fabulous 111 - Sunflowers by Sandi Samples.  I really love the bright sunflowers.  I find them so very cheerful!

For this card I managed to use all left over papers!!!  YAY!!!!  Since it's a rectangular shape card it makes a difference.... I usually go for the 6x6 card but then the left over pieces are perfect for rectangle cards.  I have to try to make more of those.  I just find that most sketches are easier with the 6x6 and most of the time I use the smaller paper packs... but then I always have a few sheets that I cut or a few 6x6 that are leftover like the white piece of dp - it's some boards in a whitish color.  Anyway I'm really happy with the result.  I used my scallop and large circle dies from Spellbinder and that's it!

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics and the fabulous sentiment from Create with TLC.
I followed this fabulous sketch and this week the spin is sunflowers!

And I used this image as my inspiration:
