This Challenge from Just-Add-Ink gave a inspiration image to start. They have chosen of all things, my favorite flower, the sunflower. Stampin Up! used to have a wonderful set using sunflowers which I bought before it retired a few years ago, and there is no way I'll be parting with that, but I wanted to try doing something different, a punch art sunflower.
So I got out my Daffodil delight Early Espresso, and Old Olive cardstock and went to work! My large oval, 1/2" circle, and large 2 3/8"Scallop were all that I needed to make a great flower. The rest I sponged, tore, and popped until I had everything where I wanted it!
Then of course I needed a saying, so I pulled out Teeny Tiny Wishes, since the flower filled the whole card, and used my two tag punches to make a nice little saying. A little bit of striped 1 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon finishes off the card.
