Sunflower for Grandma

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge features a sassy sunflower: courtesy of Spellbinder's Shapeabilities (Sunflower Set One from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store)! Our challenge for this week (ssnotime137)was to create a three dimensional blossom however we would like!

I also wanted to show you Our Daily Bread design's "Grandma" sentiment, from their April release "Mom" set...isn't the font pretty?

The sunflower petals and base of my card were created with October Afternoon's "The Thrift Shop" pad, also available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. This 8 X 8" decorator paper pad is so sweet, chuck full of vintage prints! They remind me of vintage flour know, the printed kind that women used to make recycle and make dish towels and such from?

In addition: a center of Bazzill "Nutmeg" textured paper, and a SU "Old Olive" leaf, finishes this sunny bloom.

I cannot wait to see what the rest of the Stamp Simply Challenge team has come up with! Check them out:

Hi Deb~

What an incredible sunflower! I just LOVE the paper the card is made out of, I think I may need to check it out! I kept looking at the center of the flower unable to tell what the substance was. I thought it may have been a piece of heated rubber. I never would have thought of a texturized piece of paper! Bravo to you!
