Papercraft Star Challenge #58

     There were so many colors shapes and patterns to pick from in this weeks inspiration photo and Papercraft Star.  My eyes zeroed in on the blue print fabric in the window frame and the yellow sunflower on the little throw pillow.  I found a really cool digital file from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay, called Floral Fabric Backgrounds (119) and used one of the panels to create three floral blocks as a background for my sunflower.  The sunflower was a digital stamp freebie from Beccy's Images and it's colored with Copics.  I added some seam binding that I sprayed with Candlelight Glimmer Mist and a couple of stick pins I made from beads I had in my stash.
     Up for grabs this week are (2) digital download files for our first place winner and (1) for the runner up from our wonderful sponsor

     So get your projects linked up by 6:00 a.m. EST on Monday!
     Be blessed today!  :-)

  1. Oh this is gorgeous Tracy!
    Hugs Heidy

  2. Tracy, the blue and yellow are so pretty together! That large sunflower reminds me of one of the fields next to our home. My daughter wants to run through the flowers so bad, but I tell her she might need to run reaaaally fast when the owner chases her off the property! haha!

    Gorgeous card and love the pretty ribbon! My favorite kind!

  3. You incorporated the challenge so well with this card, loving it!

    We would love to have you take a peek at the Polkadot Door!

  4. Such an beautiful card. I just love the color of those pains in the background.
    And the sunflower is so pretty.. It such a happy looking flower..
    Take care my friend..

    Hugs, Linda

  5. It always seems so strange to me that one person sees what another cannot. I never saw that gorgeous sunflower in the photo, yet you certainly did, and made such a gorgeous card from it ! Your seam binding color is wonderful!

  6. What is it with blue and yellow? They always are a perfect match of colours, but you took it beyond that, this is gorgeous, because the yellow of the background is emphasized by the beautiful sunflower. Wonderful ribbon colouring, too Tracy!! Hugs, Ira

  7. Hi Tracy! What a beautiful card. The pop of the mustard colored seam binding against the blue is just gorgeous! The sunflower image is the perfect touch too, great job!

  8. Oooh, very cool card, Tracy! Such an eye catching combo between those background panels and the lovely sunflower. So love that big seam binding bow, too.
