Two for One

I loved this bright sunflower-like paper and wanted to make a card from it.  Enter the Freshly Made challenge.  It was the perfect sketch for this paper. 

I needed something rather large to show off the pattern so I chose to make a half sheet card (5 1/2 by 8 1/2.)

I cut the large sunflower looking bloom from Accent Essentials but one didn't look right.  I cut a second one but it didn't look right with two either plus a design rule is "set of three".  Sooo, I cut a stem from Cindy Lou and that was my answer.  The card base is Kraft cardstock and the rest of the paper is from my trusty Amber Autumn stack from DCWV, except for the dark brown.  I'm also entering this into the Birthday Sundaes challenge.

Since I had a blossom left over, I HAD to make another card.  This one is just an A2 so the blossom fills up the card and there was no need for any extra stem or anything.  Now that I see it printed here, it looks amazingly like the flower in the paper. 

Since it's so bright and cheery, I decided to make this one a "thinking of you-cheer-get well" card.  It cheers me up. :-)
