sunflower thanks

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  I have a card to share today with absolutely no stamping on it!  I love that A Jillian Vance Design has some wonderful word dies that give you the option of making a card without needing to stamp a sentiment.   My card today uses the Poinsettia dies, the Thanks word die and a leaf die from the Leaves and Petals die set.
About a month or so ago Bunny mentioned in an email to me that she had discovered that the Poinsettia die set could be used to make a sunflower.  The idea to do that had been in the back of my mind ever since then.  As I was figuring out what I would make for today's post I remembered that little tidbit and my card was born!  I die cut the largest poinsettia three times from a golden yellow cardstock and layered them together.  I could have used one of the smaller dies, as well, but that will be for another time!  I die cut the center of the flower twice from a dark brown cardstock and then adhered them to the center.  The leaves were die cut from a textured green cardstock.  I thought some patterned paper in a gingham print was the perfect backdrop.  That was die cut with a Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  The thanks was die cut from the dark brown and green cardstock and they layered together slightly offset.  I adhered the leaves and the flower and then added the thanks.  I think the poinsettia dies make beautiful sunflowers and must thank Bunny for the great tip!!
