Stampin'UP! Sunflower

I stumbled upon the "Less is More" challenge blog this week, and couldn't pass up a chance to highlight one of my favorite colors of the rainbow, YELLOW!  Although I'm usually most fond of the 'whoa that's bright' shades of yellow, whenever I pick up Stampin'UP!'s Sunflower background stamp I tend to use the more muted tones.  For this card, I used a good deal of sponging and some color spritzing to achieve a worn look to the background.

More Mustard card base
Daffodil Delight card stock cut to 5 3/8" by 4 1/8"
Confetti White card stock cut to 5 1/4" by 4", then sponged with Daffodil Delight and Chocolate Chip.
Sunflower stamped in More Mustard ink, and then sparingly colored in with the Daffodil Delight marker.  I then used the Chocolate Chip marker to dot in the center a little, and then sponged some more Chocolate
Also used the color spritzer with the Daffodil Delight marker, hard to see in the photo.
Chip to soften the look.
Bee from Stampin'UP! Nature Walk stamped in Daffodil Delight
Sentiment from Stampin'UP! Thank You Kindly is inked in Chocolate Chip, and then stamped off once.

We do ask that participants remove the Word Verification from their blogs, as deciphering the wobbly letters is a real pain!
I had two goes at them right this time!

That is stunning- that sunflower is a lovely stamp, and your sponged background sets it off a treat.
