Here's the Design Team:

I thought of making a sun card with a sundial. I like how the plaid looks with the copper.

 For my second card I turned the sun/moon into a sunflower. I put copper inka gold on the center and glued beads to the center. I then added more inka gold to the beads after the glue dried.


  1. Wow, you were so creative with this stamp set. What a great idea to turn the sun into a sunflower!

  2. Stunning, both! I have an obsession going on with burlap and your card drew me right in! Great work and use of the sun and gold!

  3. What stunning cards MariLynn - love the texture and colours you have used, and the black plaid and copper look fabulous together. The dimension on the second card is amazing - love the selection of corrugated card colours, and the contrast with the burlap brilliant.

  4. Very creative use of the sets

  5. Great looking cards with all the texture that you added.
