Sunbursts

Hello dear friends.

Today I'm sharing a card I made using a page from last  year's calendar.


I thought it needed something else.

So.......

I added some grunge dots.


It's amazing what a few dots or splatters can add.

Enjoy!

Wow, what a difference the grunge dots make....good to see that before and after. Small touches can make a big difference and you are so good at knowing just what to add. The coloring is wonderful, as always on your cards. Happy New Year, my friend.

I love it just the way it is without the splotches - that's why they call me perfectly plain Sandy!!

What a wonderful idea to use one of your calendar images. Gorgeous daisies, Bonnie. I love how adding the splatters added so much depth to your image. Your gel pen really was a great way to make the centers of your flowers pop. TFS my friend. Hugs
