Sunflower Thank You

My upline challenged us to use our our new punches, and I got carried away, so come back this weekend to see what else I've come up with. Today's post contains a sunny thank you, perfect for just about anyone in your life!
I actually used the poinsettia stamp from a Christmas stamp from last fall's Occasions catalog to create the sunflower. Unfortunately this stamp set (Berry Christmas) is now retired, but perhaps you can dig through your stash to find a similar stamp that can be repurposed. I just stamped it on and cut it out by hand.
The white scallop is one of our new border (scallop trim border) punches being offered only during can earn it free with any $50 purchase. A coordinating corner punch is available in the Oocasions mini catalog until April 30, 2010.
A couple other items to note: the strip of patterned paper is more yummy paper from the Sweet Pea collection (I told you I couldn't get enough!!!), as is the felt leaf on the sunflower. For some added interest and depth, I stamped the sunflower image repeatedly on the so saffron cardstock using so saffron ink for a watermarked look, and I also ran the chocolate chip background through the Big Shot machine with an embossing plate.
