Sunflowers Make Me Happy

Spring is here, and with Spring comes all of the flowers! My Dad loves working in the yard, and planting flowers, and that has rubbed off onto his kids as well! I love flowers and can't wait to plant a few myself. My card today features a flower that always makes me smile. Maybe it's the golden yellow, or the size of the flower, but whatever it is the sunflower is just a cheerful flower! I cut out my sunflower using SCAL, My Cricut Expression and a file I found online. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up clear mount set "Whimsical Words". I used two different border punches, the scallop punch from SU, and an EK Success punch that I have never used on a card before. It reminds me of swiss cheese, but I LOVE the way it looks on my card! The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, and the Button by Making Memories. I used my SU chalks to chalk the edges of the sunflower petals. I think it gives the flower definition.

This week is button week here on my blog, and I am giving away a lot of 90 multi colored buttons! You can read about it here: Button Blog Candy Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Great card! I love that sunflower.

Ronnie-I found the stamp set deal at a Super Walmart 45 minutes from me, my little Walmart doesn't carry them either. I will check next time I am at a Super WM and if they still have them, I will pick one up for you.
