All Occasion Slimline Card Using Conie Fong Sunflower Gnome - Double Sunflower and CTMH Products

Hello Friends!  How is everyone?  It is sure hot here in Southern CA.  I hope everyone is staying safe and having time to craft.  

I have been having fun coloring and creating using Slimline cards.  I know they aren't new; but I didn't think I wanted to use them in the beginning.  Something different is always scary at first.  LOL!  I love them now.  I am having a hard time going back to regular cards now.  I bought so many cute slimline dies; that I feel obligated to use them.  

I created this card for one of my sisters.  I had so much fun coloring and using Conie Fong "Sunflower Gnome - Double Sunflower".  I also used one of Conie Fong Sun images.  They are currently free as a member for her Facebook group.  I used her new Conie Fong "Sunflower In a Pot" image on the inside.  

I purchase PNG images when they are available; as you can layer them on Microsoft Word, using the sentiment and other images with them as I did on this card.
