Pumpkins and Sunflowers

Happy World Card Making Day!


This is the only card I’ve gotten done today. I had grand plans of creating a bunch but the weather was beautiful so my hubby and I took advantage of it.  I crave blue skies and sunshine and I know we won’t have many more days like that in the coming months.



I used the digital set Pumpkins and Sunflowers from Daydream Designs. I love sunflowers so this set was a must have for me! I paired the images with Forever Fall designer paper from Bo Bunny.

Here are the copic colors I used:

Sunflowers – Y38, Y35, Y23, Y21, E37, YG17

Pumpkin – YR18, YR15, YR12 (each color was layered multiple times)

Ground – E37, E35, E33


The layout for the card was for this week’s sketch at Paper Makeup Stamps~


I am also entering this card in the following challenges~

Card Crafters Circle – #43 Autumn Colours

Card Makin Mamas – Fall theme

Crafty Catz – #153 Autumn

Delicious Doodles – #5 Flowers
