Solidarity Sunflowers

 I'm in the process of creating guide sheets for an upcoming card making workshop and needed to make up a penny spinner card and photograph the necessary steps.  I thought I'd dedicate the resulting card to the brave men and women of the Ukraine and made it up in the national colours of the Ukraine flag and included sunflowers which are Ukraine's national flower.  Obviously I needed some green but was reluctant to use any other colour than blue or yellow (and black and white of course) so cut the grass and stems from yellow vellum knowing they would appear green against the blue background panel.

I'm entering the following challenges (the link is in the title under the images)

ModSquad Challenge
Modsquad Challenge - Standing with Ukraine

Alphabet Challenge Blog
Alphabet Challenge - X is for Xanthic (yellowish)

Little Red Wagon - Let it Be (B is for bee)

I almost forgot that I used a new  die to cut the clouds in this project(it cuts 6 clouds and they're all a little different) so I'm entering NBUS Challenge #36 as well!

I would also like to enter the current As You Like it Challenge - Favourite Interactive.  This is definitely my favourite type of interactive card to make (and play with) and here's a little video to show you why!

Apologies if I have exceeded any limits on challenge entries, I want the internet flooded with blue and yellow cards!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.  If you leave a comment, I’ll be thrilled!  I’ll also know you were here and check out what you’ve been up to so we can get better acquainted!
