Sunflowers for a Happy Birthday!

Hi!  Just a very short post today to share I card I made recently.  No challenges.  Just a card :)

This one was just fun to make :)  This was the first time I had inked up these cute sunflower stamps, and I loved working with them.  Sunflowers always make me think of warm weather and sunshine.  Hmm...I guess that's a no-brainer.  SUNflower is the name, after all.  Anyway.  Here are a few pics.

The base of the card was die cut with a Spellbinders die (both the front and back panels).  I added some machine stitching to the orange panel.  The sunflowers were die-cut then stamped...then I used some foam tape to pop them up on the card.  I'm thinking I might make a couple more of these sunny cards.

Thanks for taking a look today!

Edited to add:  This card is listed in my Etsy shop.
