Sunflowers for a Friend

This card features the adorable Anya Blooms stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I had colored her a few weeks ago -- holding sunflowers -- when my Dad gave us a Mammoth sunflower for the kids from his garden.  I finally decided tonight to make a card with this image.  What do you think?

I die cut the edge of the yellow layer and punched holes through the smaller circles, stitched with mandarin twine.  The larger circles were the perfect size to embellish with clear rhinestones.

The sentiment is from LOTV's Mixed Circular Sentiments set and is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.  It is secured to the card with dimensional glue dots.  Here is a closer look:

Oh, and if you want to see the Mammoth sunflower that started it all, here is my son taking a closer peek at it in our living room.  And yes, that is him playing in his car seat -- which was freshly laundered after a massive banana mishap in the car.  That's a story for another time...
