Fall Sunflower

I am soooooo excited to say I have returned to the  Dies R Us Design Team!

This Design Team is chalked full of so many talented ladies, some of whom I know dearly and others I am looking forward to getting to know!
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 from the Gina K Designs stamp set, Sentimental Summer.   
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 sentiment.  Both from Power Poppy stamp sets; In Praise Of Sunflowers and Olive And Oak.  Colored with Copic Markers, ink in Pear Pizzazz.  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:
