Layers of Color - Sunflower Squares

Good Monday morning,

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and that your new week is off to a good start! I only have a few minutes this morning for some blogging and email and then it's off to do laundry and clean up the house. Ahhh, Mondays!

I wanted to share this card I made using Layers of Color stamps. I'm particularly proud of this one as it was just published in the latest issue of Just Cards! Magazine. It was a nice surprise to receive that free issue in the mail and see my card on one of the pages!

I love this stamp set too, it's called Architectural Blocks and it's available at Layers of Color. I used watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter to color this image. The papers are all SU! cardstocks in Artichoke, Saffron, and Chocolate Chip. I added a piece of chocolate ribbon for some added detail. It's a simple card, yet I think it still has a lot of interest.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great Monday! Happy Stamping! :)
