Sunflowers - Fill your life with them!!

Sunflowers - don't you just love them? They are SUCH a sign of summer - and also a sign of summer's end (I think anyway). When I saw the challenge for Day 157 late last night as I waited for my daughter to call me to come get her from work - I thought about what I would do. I started out with one plan, scrapped it and came up with what I think is a better card. I used a Sweet Impression stamp for the sunflower and leaves and then found this sentiment that just absolutely fit. I am thinking it is a HM sentiment, but the side of the block doesn't indicate that, so not sure. I used white for my card base and then layered close to cocoa for my bg. I then stamped (AND CUT OUT) each of the flowers and leaves. I used my summer sun for the yellow and the close to cocoa for the center of the flower. I popped the flowers for the added dimension.
Thanks for taking a peek and I hope your DAY is filled with sunflowers and all things beautiful.

Great card for today Paula. Love the sentiment. Sunflowers remind me of fields. Where I live (in the country) there are whole fields of sunflowers which are harvested for the seeds and oil. They are so happy looking with their faces to the sun.

That sentiment does fit, doesn't it... sunflowers just make me happy. Don't know why. Pansies, too... but that's a grandma memory... :)
