Curtain Call Inspiration: Sunflowers!

Clearly Besotted is the sponsor for this challenge over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge  with a chance to win their own set called: Blooming Marvelous stamps and Die Collection!!  Yahoo!!


I used PTI Simple Sunflower.  First I die cut the circle using a nestability die, then I marked off the circle on the card base and stamped my flowers.  the sentiment is a Hero Arts one that I shaped inside the actual die while it was on the glass block in order to get the sentiment to follow the circle.  I masked the flowers to add the leaves.

And now because I am going to take the new Online Card Class:  Insider, I am paying special attention to the inside of the cards, so here is this one:
It kind of goes with the front of the card sentiment:  amazing friend!!  Oh and I didn't forget to add a flower to the front of the envelope...but of course it was AFTER I cleaned and put the whole set away!!  I am learning, it is just taking me a while..!!
