Sunflower Happy Birthday [MIM #61]

Sunflower Birthday Card PTI Vine Border Die

I was ready for a challenge today, but was initially stuck when I read the PTI challenge to make a flower using leaf dies. No leaf dies in my collection! So I ended up using the Vine Border Die, and thought it was going to have to pass for a sunflower.

PTI Leafy Vine Border Die

Bending between each leaf and then adhering the strip behind the brown circle was all it took.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies:
PTI Just the Ticket Stamp Set
PTI Leafy Vine Border Die
PTI Circle Die
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
PTI Spring Moss Ink
ColorBox Dark Brown and Chestnut Roan Ink
Bamboo Skewer
