Sunflower



I have had this new Cheery Lynn Design sunflower die cut for a while and have been wanting to use it and today is the day. I really love the CAS design and pretty swirls for stems.

I'm entering my card into a new challenge, Twisted Tuesday Challenges. The theme is 'I Never Promised You a Rose Garden'.....you must use flowers. The  'Twist' is no roses or rosettes.

I'm also entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-April Showers Bring Spring Flowers

Oooh what a pretty flower! Fab layout and I love your wee corner punch too!
(Oh, when I was spring cleaning I found that polar bear stamp you'd asked about ages ago and its made my Anita's ... but its really old, think I bought it when I first started crafting)

This is CAS at it's best! I love that richly colored flower and flourished stem! Very pretty card!!

Sigh. I do love that Memory Box die. I know I'll break down and buy it sometime. IF only Michael's or AC Moore or JoAnn's carried it in-store, it would go home with me ASAP!

Love how you turned it into a stem. :)

Wonderful sentiment and flower. I want that die cut (but then I want all the Cherry Lynn dies). The colors you chose for this are perfect. Hugz.

I tried a couple of times yesterday to tell you what a beautiful sunflower you created but Jack had other ideas. And those swirls give it such movement. I love it!
