RRCB57~Bold and Bright

 Happy SCS (Scripture Card Sunday)  Today I made a bright bold card for the in living color challenge at: Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  I used stampin up Mixed Bunch from 2013 the center flower, and  Seeing spots, 2006 for the background.  My scripture verse is just a single stamp that I've had stashed among my SCS stamps. I keep them in a separate little box.📦
  I began by thinking💡 I wanted a little flower 🌼or the center.  I even cut out the card underneath to drop it in there, but it just didn't look so nice, so I went for bold and big.  Then trying to place that little round rivet in the middle was another challenge, the first attempt went wrong, so I had to pull it off and in doing so ripped the flower petals.  grrrr.. But I was determined, so I tried again and it worked.  I think it's a cheery little card. 😉 
I wanted to share the progress of my newly planted little 🌻sunflower in the egg shape container.  Gosh it's growing.  So exciting.  These really would make lovely little  gifts for kids just starting to garden.. and since I'm such a kid at heart. 💗 It's perfect.    You can see the start up video and package here at: Sunflower.  Thank you so much for visiting me today.  Please stop back soon.  Take a moment to browse around and see my other projects too.  
Keep Smiling 😊 Keep Stamping
