Sunflower Card for MMSC #125

Today is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #125.  Being on Priscillastyles Design Team requires that I make a card every two weeks for this challenge.  Priscilla always provides 2 different types of sketches.  One is Clean And Simple and the other is Fancy.  You can choose whichever you like.  I chose Priscilla's Sunflower Digi Set for my card.

I printed 4 varying sizes of the center flower decreasing it in size by 1/4" each time.  I colored them with Promarkers, then cut them out and used foam adhesives to adhere them together.  This gave the flower a 3D effect.  I printed 2 of the sunflower on a stem. and matted them to display at the bottom of the card.  I used black Stickles for the "seeds" in the centers of the flowers.  

Other items used:
Paper - My Mind's Eye Fall In Love Stack
Martha Stewart Laurel Leaf Corner Punch
Promarkers Used:
Sunflowers - Sunflower, Gold, Burnt Sienna
Leaves and Stems - Forest Green, Pine
Chalk - to shade background paper for the stemmed sunflowers.

Here are the sketches.  I hope you will decide to join us for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
