Clearly Besotted Stamps is our fabulous sponsor for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sunflower Surprise!  Stephanie Wincott, owner of Clearly Besotted Stamps generously provided Blooming Marvellous Stamps and Die Collection for our challenge today!




Clearly Besotted Stamps is offering a wonderful prize to our Sunflower Surprise LEAD, too...Marvellous Blooms Stamps and Die Collection!


If you search for the significant meaning of a sunflower you will see that it is a symbol of loyalty and longevity, symbolic of adoration, significant of radiance and warmth and one of the happiest flowers. 

The card that I made for the challenge is wedding card for two friends being married next weekend.
One sunflower for each of them.
