Hello Dear Friend

I combined two challenges for my card:  MFTWSC199 
and Just Us Girls Challenge - photo inspiration
I chose the sunflowers in the photo and used MFT Sunflower dies and Leaf-Filled Flourish die.  The sunflower is cut from SU Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede for the center.  I cut two layers of each size and staggered the petals when layering them. I sponged the edges of the petals with Soft Suede ink.  The flourish is cut from SU Old Olive.  The sentiment is from MFT Blissful Butterflies stamped in SU Chocolate Chip ink.  For the background I stamped MFT Wood Plank Background in SU Crumb Cake ink on MFT Natural CS and cut 1-1/8" squares and adhered them to a Soft Suede panel.  The card base and banner are from MFT Whip Cream CS.  The banner is cut with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax die.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I appreciate your comments.
