Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge #149-"Die Cuts"

Happy Sunday everyone!!

I sure hope that you're all enjoying a wonderful long weekend before we get back into the routine of back to school and look towards fall!

Today at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia it's team Sweet Magnolia's turn to show you our projects for our current "Die Cuts" challenge...our wonderful sponsor is The Ribbon Girl!

For my project I've had sunflowers on my mind...the farm across from us has several fields filled with them and when they all come in and turn their little heads toward the sun it's a beautiful sight!!  You should see all the cars that stop to take pictures...we usually end up with mini traffic!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I've sure been enjoying making lollipop cards so thought I'd do one up as a sunflower...
I used Spellbinders Grand Circle for cutting the image matt and base matt...
for the petals I used a Spellbinders leaf die cut and cut out pieces of yellow Foamiran...
dusted them with Memento Cocoa ink and used my heat gun to shape them into the sunflower petals...
this little darling is "Wondering Tilda"...I masked the darling little Magnolia Ladybug onto her foot...
coloured with my copics...
some of the layers of the "sunflower"...
the butterfly die is from the Magnolia Vintage Box #1...
 the sentiment "you make my heart flutter" is a Fiskars stamp...
stamped with Stazon onto chiffon ribbon...
and another butterfly from the same Magnolia butterfly die...

And that is my "sunflower" lollipop card!!  Now I sure hope that you will pay my talented team mates a visit over at Lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia...then come on over and join in the fun!
