I've made my card using ODBD's Harvest Blessings and the matching Large Sunflower Die! My base is made of Very Vanilla, Hazel Bazzill, Chocolate Chip and some My Mind's Eye Sunshine DP. Across the middle I've added more Chocolate layered with Sunshine DP and wrapped some dark ivory ribbon around it all. I've cut some Very Vanilla with Lacey Oval Nestabilities then cut the middle out with Large Oval Nestabilites and then backed with a piece of Vellum. The Sunflowers are from Harvest Blessings and have been stamped on X-press It Blending Card in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copics (YR24, E33, E35, YG93, YG95, YG97, Y21, Y35, Y38). The flowers were cut out using the co-ordinating ODBD Custom Die - Large Sunflower Die! I love how perfectly these dies cut around the image!! :) I've glued the flowers on over the Lacey Oval die and finished by stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set in black at the bottom, added a bow made with my Bow Easy and a few Kaisercraft Chino Pearls to the corners.
