Jenny Gropp - you are here!


 Sunflowers just seem like the happiest of flowers so I had to pair the new Sunflower Die up with the new "Be Happy" sentiment. I pulled out my Graphic 45 French Country papers to hunt down this pretty sunflower paper. 

 On the inside I added a strip of the G45 Sunflower paper but left it blank for an any occasion card. 

I added several layers of the flower over one another. I cut some of the back flower layers and extended them out giving me a little bit of a larger flower. I die cut the center three times and glued them all together and then ran them thru an embossing folder for a little added texture. A little foam tape in between some of the layers adds dimension.
