Pink Sunflower Card

When I saw this set I knew that it would make beautiful sunflowers. But I didn't want to always make yellow sunflowers. Thank goodness for Pinterest. It was easy to look up different sunflowers and different ones that other Demonstrators have already done. 

My favorite color is Pink so of course I had to make some pink flowers. 
Also I don't have a sympathy card and I have recently seen a lot of these type of cards on Pinterest so I figured I needed to make one. 

This card came out better then I expected. Just a beautiful card. One thing that makes this card stand out is the way that I cut the flowers. When you fussy cut anything out usually you leave a type of border around the image. I saw online that with this particular flower if you cut right up to the image line and not leave a border then the flowers have a more realistic feel to them. I found this to be very true. I felt the flowers popped so much better then when I would cut a border. A nice simple trick to try on your next fussy cutting.
