Fall Sunflower

Donna Phelan here,  Happy Fall, Y'All! (just read that without my Boston accent)  :)
I am so glad it's here and I am so excited to be back on the Dies R Us Design Team!  I know a lot of you talented ladies already and am looking forward to getting to know the rest of you!
Now on with the show.......

I used this fabulous Cheery Lynn Sunflower Set.  Isn't it just glorious?  I die cut the Sunflower twice so I could offset and layer it to add some depth and dimension.  I also sponged the edges to do the same.  Small Flourish accent stamped inside.
Look at all of that texture you get just by die cutting, such great embossed detail!
On my sentiment panel I stamped a small Sunflower and colored it with Copic Markers.  I also added these fantastic Cheery Lynn Wheat Heads.  They always work so well on Fall cards or bouquets of flowers.  Button, Twine and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion for accents.

Here you can see how the petals can be curled up for even more dimension, this was done by simply gluing down the center of each flower, nothing more.
Here are direct links to the products I used:
I hope you enjoyed this creation as much as I enjoyed making it!
