Sweet Sunflower

I let my mother-in-law borrow my stash of dies this weekend while we were away, so I didn't have them this morning when I needed to make an anniversary card that I had forgotten about.  Can I make a card without dies??  Yep, and I really love how it turned out.  I had this image printed out for a different project but it didn't work out.  So, all I had to do was trim it to the size I wanted and color it up.  I used a stencil to create the stripes on the side.  Love that stencil!  It is actually a deep brown to match the sunflower, even though it shows up as black in the picture.
