My mouth dropped on the ground when I saw this Sunflowers set. I can't be more excited for such a cool sunflower. The tiny ladybug on the leaf even is super fun. I am going to show you 2 cards with this set today. This first one I kept simple as I had a friends daughter over and she is wanting to get into stamping. She asked me to show her some easy sketches and some cute tricks that won't cost her a lot. Being 13 she really doesn't have a steady income other than mom and dad. LOL So ofcourse I had to show her how to score her borders, I mean what stamper doesn't score every border. bawhahaha Anyways I used Copic Collections Buttercup, Tiger Lily and Fields. I had a scrap paper from another card so I scalloped the edge and pierced it for a side panel. Then I used my fabulous lemon crochet trim. Added a few brads and voila. Now I do have some sparkle on the leaves petals but the camera just wouldn't pick it up in the photo.

Next I have used one of the smaller Sunflowers and sentiment from the set. I like this spellbinders label 7 and I use it a lot with sentiments I know but it looks so good. I used Copic collections Daffodil and Fields with a silver finishing touches architectural brad to tie off the layered ribbons.
