Sunny Sunflower Birthday Card

I love sunflowers!  So I wanted to feature them in a big way.  This is my weapon in dealing with the snow and cold weather that we have been getting.  When I saw the "Our Friendship Grows" stamp set from Lawn Fawn, I knew I had to get it.  Yes, it has taken me this long to use it.  You got a taste of it last week with this card but I wanted more.  Here it is, in your face.  Happy and sunny!  I feel the warmth already.  
Lawn Fawn's Our Friendship Grows Sunflower Birthday Card
All the pattern papers are from Basic Grey Fact and Fiction 6x6 pads.  I layered the pattern paper onto the white card base along with a strip of chevron pattern paper that I cut a ribbon tail.  I rounded the corners of a blue pattern paper and stamped the sentiment before adhering it to the card.  I drew white dashed lines around the blue paper before adding sunflowers and leaves that I stamped, colored and cut.
I doubled up the foam adhesive on the big sunflower to pop it up even further.  For a finishing touch, I added a heart from Simon Says Stamp die that I used Wink of Stella pen and Crystal Lacquer on.  I love the way this card came out, it looks like a bouquet that I would love to receive.
