I love sunflowers. During the day, the young sunflower will follow the path of the sun to receive the most light for photosynthesis. At night they turn back to the east in anticipation of the sun rising the next day. There was a random Facebook post about how sunflowers face each other if there is no sun to give each other strength, but unfortunately that is not true. It is a nice thought though!
To make this card, I first randomly stamped the smaller sunflowers in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then I stamped the larger sunflower and the leaves and cut them out too. I colored the sunflower using Daffodil Delight Blends and the leaves in Old Olive. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Here’s A Card. I punched that out using the Label Me Fancy Punch.
I love your sunflower background. It really highlights the larger one. And what a sweet thought about sunflowers facing each other for strength! (I wish it was true, too.)
Susan, this is a lovely card. Your background really makes it work.
