Sweet Sunday Sunshine

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I was bit perplexed by this sketch when I first saw it, what to do?
Of course I wanted to use the flower element, you all know my love of flowers.
I had just gotten this new set by Just Rite called Stitched Sunflowers so I pulled it out and stamped both sizes of the sunflower and the leaves onto some scrap Confetti Cream card stock and colored them up.
I cut them out and layered them up to make my big Sunflower. 

The base of the card is Early Espresso and then some Confetti Cream card stock and the DSP I used is from a retired pack.
I then did another layer of Early Epresso and then a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I then pierced all around this layer using my piercing tool and mat pack.
I die cut a large circle and cut it in half. I added it to the crumb cake layer. I then used some of the SU 1-1/4 inch burlap ribbon and  cut it down a bit and frayed the edges and added it to the layer with some sticky tape. I added the Sunflower image and stamped the sentiment onto the circle piece. I did not like the look of the sentiment, it seemed to be lost on the circle. So I decided to stamp it again and make a sentiment flag, you can still totally see the circle back there right?
I finished it up with some stick back gold pearls.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:
