One Stitch at a Time Challenge 121

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our theme is the sun! So, colours or shapes or something else that means 'sun' to you!  We're sponsored this week by

This week, I chose a gorgeous image from Floppy Latte designs called 'Funky Flower'. I chose a theme with circles, and golden sunshine colours coupled with sky blues. And flowers, of course, need lots of sunshine!
First, I printed the image four times. I coloured it with Promarkers, and layered it as shown. Before I layered, I scanned the base layer matted to a nestiblity scallopped circle. I used this image to make a backing paper which included the borders as shown. To add a final touch of dimension, I layered the three corner 'buttons'.

Finally, I added an insert to match.

Hope you can join us this week.
