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 ...
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 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
