Sunflower Birthday

This is my last guest designer card for The Stamping Boutique!  As soon as I saw this sweet Sunflower Girl - digi, I thought of my sister.  Her favourite flower is sunflowers!  The challenge at TSB Challenge Blog is Handmade Flowers.  I decided to go for this challenge because I'm afraid of it!  I've tried and tried to make my own flowers without very positive results.  When I saw this Rolls Flowers Video by Katharina Frei, I thought, "I can do that!"  It took me a couple of tries, but I love the result!  I tried to push out the edges a little with my finger to make the flower "petals" stand out a little.  Then I filled the centres with Lime Green Stickles.  The image is coloured with Copics (hair-E35, #34, YR21, YR20; skin-E21, E00, E000; blues-B97, B95, B93, B91; yellows-Y21, YR21, YR20; grass & stem-YG97, YG95, YG93; fence-E99, E35, E34, E21; sky-B91; flower-E97, Y21, YR21). 

Other challenges I've entered this card in:
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Creative Cowgirls Challenge - Spring or Easter
Pile It On - Cutie Patootie

Have a wonderful Tuesday, Everyone!
Hannah

Oh! Hannah, your rolled flowers are wonderful...I'm scared of making my flowers too, not scared as such, but I think they look silly when I've gone to all that trouble..and then I dont use them..but you have inspired me...so I will carry on with them. Gorgeous image too..great card.
