Hello Friend - H2H Feb 2018 Week #3 "Sunny Days"

The DT project for this week at Heart2Heart is a theme "Sunny Days" and a digital image from The Outlawz celebration for their 7th Birthday by Andrea - Sheepski Designs "Sunflowers" fit the theme.  Pulled out my copic pens, colored the sunflowers attempting to use a few of the copic class techniques I learned, and then fussy cut.  Die cut two jars using white cardstock and vellum, colored the jar on the white cardstock extending the stems, glued them to the colored jar, glued the vellum on the top and adhered sunflowers and jar to background with thin foam sheet.  

It still needed something...went through some of my previous cuts not used and found the burst of arrows which were cut from Cricut Design Space.  Had to improvise and cut out the area around the sunflowers and jar and then adhered to background.  Used a die sentiment and adhered to the vellum...pleased that it didn't cover up too much of the focal point.  

Hop on by Heart2Heart for this week's challenge "Sunny Days" and submit your interpretation of this theme.  You also have until the end of the month to create and submit previous themes and earn a badge for Perfect Attendance if you create a card for each  weekly theme during that month.
