Blossom Sunflower - Card

I made this card almost by accident. I was playing around with my new Mixed Bunch stamp set and Blossom punch. I wanted to make a sunflower but it didn't look quite right to me. I posted a picture on Facebook and it was about a 50-50 vote about it looking like a sunflower. I decided I didn't care what it looked like since I thought it was still pretty. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card, the sentiment on the inside reads "it takes a long time to grow an old friend". I sent one of the cards to my friend Amy, aka Scraparazzi, and she loved it. She always comments about how she would keep a card if I ever sent her one so I guess we will see! LOL

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up Blossom Punch
Stampin Up Bird Punch
Stampin Up Mixed Bunch stamp set
Stampin Up Cardstock
7 Gypsies Pattern Paper
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Gingham Ribbon
Grosgrain Ribbon

I stamped one of the flowers on the yellow cardstock and then cut with scissors around and down the middle of the petals. I did a double layer of this and then I punched out a yellow flower for the base. I added mounting foam between the layers. I also cut the flower center out with scissors because I thought it looked better than just using a circle punch. I used the branch from the Bird punch for the leaves.
