Floral Frames Sunflower

Today's card is the second in my series of Daydream Medallions and Floral Frames projects.  This sunflower came together pretty quickly once I settled on the idea!
I used the largest Floral Frames Framelit to cut two flowers from More Mustard cardstock and assembled them as I related in yesterday's post.  The next smaller framelit in the set of five cut the flower that had been stamped in More Mustard ink; this was adhered with Dimensionals.  
 The Chocolate Chip flower center was punched with a 2-1/2" Circle Punch then embossed with the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I swiped it several times with the Chocolate Chip pad to give it more variation in color and definition to the texture.  A Crumb Cake cardstock banner stamped with "Wonderful You" from the Loving Thoughts stamp set is attached under one of the beautiful buttons from the new Designer Brushed Bronze Button pack.  A touch of Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon ties off the button.
I diecut two Always Artichoke leaves using the Autumn Accents die and attached them to the back of the flower.  The view shows some of the dimension of the card.  This was such fun to make!

Thanks for visiting my blog!  Here's wishing you a creative day!  Come back for more in this series in the next day or two!

This sunflower is just gorgeous. The texture in the middle is a fab use of texture to show off an element on a design. Thanks so much for sharing with the SUO Challenge Design Team!
