Sunflower friend

As the end of August is fast approaching us, just a quick reminder about the Summer Mini Catalogue - these products will only be available until the end of the month, so don't miss out!   

Contact me to place an order and don't forget that I am offering FREE postage for orders over £45 and the Reason to Smile stamp set is FREE on orders over £60.

One of my favourite products in the Summer Mini Catalogue is the Mixed Bunch set, which I have shown you is great for creating flowers and butterflies.

Today, I wanted to show you a sunflower card created with this stamp set.  Apologies that the photo isn't too good, but you can just make out the colours of More Mustard (with Soft Suede in the flower centres), Island Indigo and Pool Party.  The base is Whisper White and I have folded it back on itself and then edged with the Scalloped Border punch...

I can spend hours trying to come out with new colour combinations, and not just stick to my favourites.  I wasn't too sure about the More Mustard with the other 2 colours initially but now really like this.

The leaves are created using the 'wing' from the Bird Builder punch (2-step bird puchr) and the flower centres are circles of Soft Suede which I have then run through the Square Lattice embossing folder and raised up.

You can just make out the background of the wording panel, which is Pool Party run through the Stripes embossing folder and then layered up with the More Mustard, Island Indigo and then lettering cut with the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies from Pool Party scraps of card stock.
