Sunny Sunflower

For the Stamp TV Blast from the Past Challenge, Sharri  challenged us  to create a project that has paper piecing on it. As I made this card I did not realize that I had used the same stamp as Sharri used in her example ...did not see that until I was posting. I stamped the flower twice ...once on the PP ( for the petals) and once on the solid CS (for the center). Also stamped leaves and stem on green CS. Cut out the pieces and arranged the flower on white CS matted on the solid . Used solid as base card and layered with mat of print. Added ribbon and buttons on each corner.
Entering the card in 2 other challenges:

 City Crafter Challenge: Recipe Card- 1 ribbon, 2 papers ~card stock or design paper, and 3  flowers
(used 2 button flowers and 1 stamped)
Stamps: GKD - " A Year of Flowers" by Melanie and Sentiment from "Elegant Flowers"
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Papers: SU Marigold Morning
             K&Co Patterned Paper
            Green and White CS from Scraps
Buttons and Ribbon from Stash

Have a great day!  Enjoy the flowers in bloom.
