CR84FN and CAS-ual Friday Sunflowers

I caught a glimpse of the CR84FN #58 combo, and for some weird reason, I wanted to give it a try (despite the yellow – LOL!).  I think that maybe I just got tired of not finding time to create, and finally had the gumption to make time for it, not matter what.  It was nice that Hubby chose to spend most of the day keeping the children entertained for me so I could get that time in. 😉

And as per Marybeth’s recommendation, I am turning this in for the CAS-ual Friday #61 challenge as well, to use strips of color or patterned paper.  (Thanks for looking out for me, Marybeth!) 😉

I saw beautiful Simple Sunflowers on a card over at my friend Lisa’s blog, and that made me want to use them on a card, immediately.  They really are one of my favorite flower stamps.  Here is what I created:

I used some of my new PTI pattern papers for the banners, and also a new Craft’s Meow stamp for the sentiment.

The best part about this card is that it only took about 20 minutes for me to make – which fits into my little schedule quite nicely!

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
