Sending Smiles: Big Bright Sunflowers

Good morning! Alicia here today with my first post for the Dies R Us Inspiration blog.  I am so excited be here! I created a sunflower card.  I used some of my favorite new dies.  First I started with the Impression Obsession Everyday Top Edgers Sending Smiles die.  I just love die cut sentiments!

I layered the flowers and sentiment on the Art C Dies Fancy Label die cut.

 I created the flowers with  Sizzix Thinlits Sunflower.  There are several pieces in this set and some assembly is required.  There are multiple petals/pieces on one die that makes it much easier.  I added a bit of Stickles to finish off the flower!
