Painted Harvest Sunflower Card for GDP104

Yesterday, I was designing cards with the Painted Harvest stamp set for my Stamp of the Month Club card kit. Sometimes to help get my creative juices flowing, I will use a sketch or look at other cards for inspiration. I remembered the Global Design Project Challenge this week is to CASE a card by Canadian Demonstrator Alison Okamitsu. I used a couple ideas from her card: the words stamped in the background and the main element in the middle with a bow in the right bottom corner -- but ended up changing the layout to be vertical.

Here's Alison's original card. Click here to see how the Global Design Project Team was inspired by this card and play along in this week's challenge!

[9/18/17: Edited to Add: Woo hoo!! My card received a Special Mention from the Global Design Project Team!]

I didn't end up using this card design for my card kit, but it did help get me rolling on my other card designs. Here's a little peak at my Painted Harvest Card Kit. I'll be posting close-up pics over the next week. Learn More about my Stamp of the Month Club for stampers in the United States.

I like the diagonal stamped words on the background.
