In the area where I live, the farmers grow large fields of sunflowers. People love to come and admire these fields of beautiful flowers.   Today I decided to work with Susan's Sunflower 2 die set to create my card.  This is a card that could be used for many different occasions.  

This is a 6 inch square card.  A piece of the ModaScrap Wood Efffects design paper was added to the front.  

In my stash, I had a piece of watercolor paper that I had created a background using Oxide Distress Inks.  I used this piece and Susan's new Frame It/Rectangle die set to create a frame for the sentiment.  The frame was backed with a piece of ivory card stock.  Susan's Seeds of Thought - Sunshine & Love rubber stamp was used for the sentiment.  The rectangle was attached to the upper right corner with dimensional tape.

Susan's Garden Notes Galvanized Bucket die set was used for the container for the bouquet.  A piece of the Through The Lens - Stone card stock was used for the die cut bucket.  It was attached using dimensional tape.

Use the Garden Notes Sunflower 2 die set and create three sunflowers.  Shape the flowers and leaves using Susan's Flower Tool Kit.  Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.  Add pollen to the center of each flower.

Use the Garden Notes Berry Spray die set for the berry branches.  Use Nuvo Crystal Drops for the Berries.  Use a black thin tip marker to add a dot of black to the end of each berry.

Use the Garden Notes Ostrich Fern die set to die cut three ferns.  Die cut using a light green card stock and sponge on yellow, orange and rust inks to give it an autumn color.

Use the Leafy Branch die set and die cut three branches.  Shape the leaves with the leaf tool in the Flower Tool Kit.  

Arrange the ferns, leafy branch, berry spray and sunflowers in the bucket, as shown.

This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
