I started by stamping the sunflower in Tuxedo Black and colouring it with Stampin' Blends in Cherry Cobbler and Gray Granite. I fussy cut it out and sponged the edges.
I white-embossed the image again on Basic Gray card, added some die-cut leaves and popped the Cherry Cobbler sunflower up on dimensionals.
Originally, I'd been going to use 'Wishing you brighter days ahead' as the sentiment but the more I worked on the card, the more celebratory it became - at least in my mind. 😀
So I took the 'Let's celebrate you' sentiment from the set and masked it down to 'Let's celebrate'. I felt that way it could be for a birthday, an anniversary, an engagement or just because.
