Sunflowers Card for the Funday Friday Challenge

Hi you all :) Yay it is Friday! Let the crafting begin... Today I have a card that I made for the Happy Fall challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo and I chose this wonderful sunflowers in a vase digital stamp for my card today:
I used Mojo Monday's current sketch challenge for my card: gave my card a very whimsical feel the vase reminds me of a vase my Mom had on one of the end tables in the living room when I was growing up, so I tried to mimic that vase as much as I could remember. I used my current counterfeit kit for my papers and the washi tape border.
I heat embossed my flower petals with Stampin Up's Crushed Curry embossing powders which gave it a nice texture and I colored the rest of the stamp with my bic markers and outlined the blue vase with gold lame smooch.
The card is an A2 size in blue cardstock, added the orange polka dot for the background mat, used blue washi tape for the border and added a sticker from Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection for the sentiment. I think it turned out super cute and a fun card to send to my sister with a note and thanks for the birthday card she sent me and in hope it cheers her up. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a fantastic weekend I'm looking forward to crafting a bit and spending my birthday gift cards :)
