You Are My Sunshine!

I am so excited about this card! I LOVE how it turned out and I love what I figured out and accomplished in Photoshop to create it.

I used a couple of Deedee's Digis for it. The sunflower, jar and sentiment in the label are from the "My Sunshine" set which you can find here. The label on the jar is from "Handmade with Love" set found here. There is one sunflower in the jar in the set. In Photoshop Elements, I cropped the sunflower, flipped it and added it to the other sunflower in the jar. I added the label and the sentiment inside the label. I then colored it all in photoshop including the highlights and shadows. I printed two and cut the flower top and label off one copy and popped up with dimensionals on the other one. So, now you know why I am so excited about this card. The best part is I don't have to do it all over again because it is saved and can be printed as many times as I want.

This is for a few challenges:

One Stitch At A Time: anything goes
Mojo Monday: #158 Square or round sketch
Crafting with Deedee's Digis: harvest theme (these sunflowers were harvested for someone special)
Stamp and #5 use pearls or gems (I used gems)
Anything Goes: #18 going round in circles
Digital Tuesday Challenge: #78 a card to say Thank you with (mine doesn't say Thank You but it could be for someone to thank)
Creative Card Crew: use flowers

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Be sure to say hi!

This is fabulous, Michele!!! I love what you did with the flowers, and how you used the label from the other set to create such a fun scene. How exciting for you that you are learning new things in Photoshop, too! Isn't it a fun program? Hugs, Deedee
