Sunflowers for Grace

Happy Aloha Friday! Today I have created a card using this adorable stamp from Alota Rubberstamps called Sunflowers for Grace. This is one of my many favorite new stamps at Alota, check out the new stamps HERE. I love using stamps that can be for any occassion, such as this one. I've decided not to choose papers that will take the attention away from the sunflowers so I kept it closer to one of the colors on the stamp that covered a small area. It happened to be purple.
Since my papers were chosen and my stamped image was colored all I needed was a sketch. So, this week I followed this sketch from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #10. This was a fun layout to work with. Not only is a sketch challenge going on but a chance to become a guest designer for one month, and to win some awesome blog candy!! Is that enough or what?
Click HERE and keep scrolling down to find out the details for all 3 of them.
I really liked working with this layout! This is a challenge that starts every Tuesday and runs for one week.

Here is a closer look at the bees and sunflowers. I know that this picture did not come out very clear at all and I will have to figure that out. Hope all of you have a great day and take the time to Stamp! Thanks for your all of your sweet comments!
Have a great day!
