Monday......somehow it's always too busy of a day! I had bills to pay, paperwork to do for Stampin Up and had to go to the physical therapist so he could work on my neck. Not good today.....he worked a bit TOO hard and I have had a whopper of a headache the rest of the day. It finally is starting to die down, but it leaves me feeling so drained. I think I only have 2 more sessions and I will be done. I sure hope so!!

Today's card is done with a brass stencil from my local craft store. I stenciled it with my SU inks in Mellow Moss, So Saffron, Close to cocoa and Chocolate Chip. After the ink was completely dry, I spread the Dreamweaver Embossing Transparent paste over the stencil and smoothed it out. After taking the stencil from the paper, I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the entire design. The base card is gold metallic cardstock from the DCWV Metallic Stack, but the metallic is hard to see in the pic. Then the front piece is bronze metallic from the same stack. I used one of my Corner Adorners to punch out the floral corners. I absolutely love sunflowers and am buying my seeds this week to plant out in the back yard, along with my herbs. We are supposed to have rain tonight and tomorrow, but the rest of the week is supposed to be beautiful for planting and working outside.....WOO HOO!! Til tomorrow....
