Blessings and hugs...

 Hi again,
This is another card created using the May SOTM Sunflowers.  It's $7.95 when you purchase 30.00 or more before June 1.  For this card, I took liberties to modify a sketch by Heather Scott.  You can see how I changed it...

Here's her sketch #34: 

Here's my sketch...tweaked as you may see...removed the box, added another layer on the horizontal stripe and slid the circle to the right, then added a sentiment at the bottom.  I can't make a good ribbon on my sketches so just imagine one there "). 
 In taking a closer look at my card, you can see that I used a few background stamps to create a richer feel.  I used Background Soup (I debated on whether to fill in some of those circles with my copic blender) and Script Background.  PS...I'm loving the Angelee paper, you can see I used it on this card too!!!  PSS...The ribbon is from the More Mimi ribbon collection. 
 Searching for just the right sentiment proved very challenging.  The font and the sentiment had to be just perfect...This font  (R-2055-Lucy) is a little to playful for the feel of this card, but it was the best I could do with what I had.  It works too!
