Sunflower for Ukraine

  Hello, Hope you all are doing well. With what's going on in Ukraine I felt compelled to create a card using the colors of their flag blue and yellow. I also added a sunflower since it's their National flower.



My heart has been breaking for them and for what they are going through. They are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. 

I wish there was a way to send them cards. So that they would know that we are thinking and praying for them. 

Here is a list of the Supplies used-

 Stampin Up Stamp and Dies- Celebrate Sunflowers

Stampin Up stamp set- Refuge and Strength 

Stampin Up Embossing Folder- Square Lattice

Die for sentiment. S.U.

Inks- Summer Sun and Memento Black

Cardstock- Blue, Yellow White and Black 

Yellow satin ribbon

If you decide to make a card to show support for Ukraine and put it on any social media,use the hashtag... #cardsforukraine

Thanks for stopping by, would love for you to leave a comment. Blessings to you all.
