SUNFLOWER FLIP FLOPS and RED TOES

This simple card was inspired by Colour Q Challenge #86 of Real Red, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, and Early Espresso, and Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #119. I immediately thought of this sunflower card we made at a stamp class a couple of years ago when I saw the inspiration socks from the Colour Q. The sunflower is so simple to make - punch with the scallop circle punch, cut with scissors toward the center in each indentation. The center of the sunflower is made using the 1" circle punch.

I have missed Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketches - she designs THE BEST sketches, doesn't she?!
