It's Monday! That means it is time for another challenge on the Outlines Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is to "Pick a Flower". The Outlines Rubber Stamp Company has so many beautiful floral images, so make sure you play along this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines.

For my card this week, I chose to use Outlines sunflower (H-81) image. I stamped the flower twice onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye ink and then colored both flowers with Copic markers. I cut them both out carefully with my Cutter-bee scissors and then placed them on top of one another to add dimension. I added some brown Stickles and some dots of Tuxedo Smooch to the center of the flower.

Panels of patterned paper from Bo Bunny, Basic Grey and Hot Off the Press were cut and dry embossed using Cuttlebug embossing folders. I paper pierced these panels as well as frame them using black cardstock. I mounted the finished layout onto a card made of kraft cardstock. Three small black brads and some beige lace complete the details of this card.

The sentiment is also from Outlines. It is called Tiny You're In My Thoughts (AA-860). I stamped it onto a piece of kraft with Marvy black dye ink.

A huge bouquet of flowers can be seen from the design team this week. Make sure you visit:

Fab job on the sunflower... the center looks so real!!! Love the textures in the background - a perfect pair to coordinate with the sunflower's center.
