Sunflower Thank You with Atlantic Hearts Challenge Sketch

Hello and welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Challenge sketch inspiration.  I created a very special thank you card.  I began with a sunflower photograph that I captured and printed.  I then dug out my sunflower die.  It is a bit time consuming to put this flower together but I believe the end result was worth it.

Here's this week's sketch

I cut all the petals and leaves.  I inked all the edge 

I shaped and sculpted the pieces with a stylus and foam.  You can purchase a foam mat for this purpose but I reuse pieces from brad packs.

After gluing the pieces of the flower together.  I glued down some of the center piece die cuts.  I added chunky brown glitter and let that dry.  I finally added  Judikins Rox to the center for a very textured multi layered flower.

I die cut the sentiment out of the same card stock as the sunflower petals.  I layered it on some dark green ribbon for a pop!

I always cut a writing mat for the inside of a dark card base.  I don't always add more decoration inside but the rest of this sentiment worked perfectly.

Here is a view from the side so you can see the dimension of the flower.
