Joans Challenge Flower Background

Good Morning Ladies,
I am short on time this morning so I am going to get right down to it. I have created a card for Joans Challenge Flower Background
The requirements this week are as follows:
Have three dimensional flowers with greenery
Use a floral design paper
Use a doily
Use something you can purchase at Joan's Garden
Here is the link to the challenge ... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2013/07/this-weeks-challenge_25.html
Here is my card...
 My first step in creating this card was to pick my floral background paper. I picked the sunflower paper from Graphics 45 French Country 6x6 pad I purchased at Joans. Next I picked the doily I wanted to use. My doily was cut from brown cardstock using the Cheery Lynn die Pinwheel Doily B209. I also purchased this die from Joan's Garden. I love this die. It is one I find myself using over and over again. For my greenery I used two shades of green cardstock and cut these from the Memory Box Meadow Leaf die #806 and the Cheery Lynn die Mini Fanciful Flourish B117S. Both of these dies were purchased at Joans. I then created my flowers using gold and brown cardstock. The petal edges were inked in rust. They are a double layer of petals and the centers. Between each layer is pop material. I pinched each petal. This is Cheery Lynn die DL 121 Sunflower. I purchased this die at Joans. It is one of the flower dies I love. You can purchase all of these dies at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ I only have the French Country 6x6 pad so I had no other Graphics 45 elements to add. No problem I had the rooster on an old sheet of Flair paper. I cut him out and added him to my card.
A better look at the sunflowers.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
