Freshly Made Sketches #428

Snail mail hugs it is!  It is the perfect time to send out some doses of cheer!  Sunflowers are the perfect fit.  They are so bright and cheery!  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-

My lattice panel was cut with the Cricut Artbooking Collection.  Did you know that ALL of the Close To My Heart Cricut Collections are now available in digital form?  You can purchase them through my Cricut affiliate link and get instant access!  Best of all, there are no shipping charges! My stamps are from the Sunflower Sympathy Stamp Set.  While this set does contain sympathy sets, it can also be a dose of cheer as well! My sunflower was stamped with Espresso Pigment Ink onto Honey cardstock and clear embossed.  I used the same ink on New England Ivy for the leaves. My sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. The sunflower was applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.
