Sunny Sunflower

I made this thank you card for my mom to give to her boss. He loves sunflowers and is encouraging a contest at work between employees to grow Sunflowers from seeds. Mom wanted to give him a special "thank-you" and I thought this would be a great card for him...

I used the Blossom Petals Punch to make the petals and curled them a bit with my bone folder. I also used the Square Lattice Impressions folder to give a little texture to the center of the flower. I put the flower together before adhering it to the front of the card. Once it was together I sprayed it heavily with a shimmer mist that I made by adding Shimmer Paint to rubbing alcohol. It is a little hard to see in the picture but it does "shine."
 The sentiment is from the stamp set Perfectly Penned. I added some Early Espresso Ink with the Color Spritzer of my favorite finishing touches!
Have a great FRIDAY!
