Serendipity Stamps Summer Blog Hop - Day 1



Over the next 3 days the Serendipity Stamps Design Team will be showcasing the Summer Release dies and stamps.  Today I have a die to show off.  Do you like Sunflowers??? If you do this is the die for you!



I paired it up with Graphic 45's French Country paper (big surprise, right?).  
The papers are just the right color for the Sunflower.


As you can tell from the close up I die cut the flower twice and off set the top one.  
Makes for a more interesting image I think.  I inked the edges of the petals to set them off even more from the red background paper.



Keeping the inside blank means I can use it for almost any occasion that comes up.
Finished size is 6 x 4 1/4.
