Atlantic Hearts 178 - Sunflowers Abound!

The Flower Market Cricut cartridge has me hooked! The wreaths, flowers and other images are simply awesome! The sketch at Atlantic Hearts this week was one where I took some definite liberties as you will see... but a sketch is a guideline, not something written in stone. 

I chose to use the flowers and the sentiment placement as a guide for my design and turn that into a wreath. I wanted a sky-like background and chose to use a piece of paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals with a watercolour background on it. It resembles a sky sort of look. The Sapphire Blue helps to set off the yellow tones in the sunflowers. 

Join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us your interpretation of the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to enter your creation.

  1. Ooooh, lots and lots of die-cuts from Flower Market...great job on your interpretation of the layout...and love that watercolor background from Paper Fundamentals. Beautiful, sunflowers were very popular back East and we usually had them planted behind our garage, and so many fields of just sunflowers in New York.

  2. Oooh this is gorgeous- I really must start playing with the Flower Market cartridge some more.

  3. Beautiful job on this card Alyson. Sunflowers are my favorite flower! Have a sunny day :)
