Sunflower Branches

I wish I had written down the name of the first creator when I saw this card.  I am not sure how she even made the card, because a picture was worth 1000 words.  I filed the card in my mind and now weeks later here is my version. 
I must say cutting 12 leaves for the Sun flower was a bit tedious and then X 4 to make 3 more cards!!  So this will not be a Stamp A Stack card.  But if you purchase this bundle you can make all the Flowers you want and enjoy the MANY ideas this Fabulous stamp set can create.  I used 3 different embossing folders for the backgrounds.....Petal Burst, Brick Wall and Seaside.  Which one do like the best?

 Here is the Seaside background on a Crumb Cake card base.  The Leaves are Garden Green.  The Sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso before embossing with the Seaside Folder. 
The Hydrangea Bloom was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Early Expresso embossing powder.  Then cut out with the Framelit and then cut in half using the petals as a guide with your snips.  I punched a 2 inch Early Expresso circle and then popped up the two halves to form a 3D Sunflower center. 
The Petals were stamped in Delightful Dijon and Crushed Curry on Daffodil Delight or So Saffron card stock.  I curled the Petals with a Bone folder and then used Tombow to adhere to the back of the circle.  Also Popped this up on the card front.  A Linen Thread Bow ties this card all together.

 Here is the Brick Wall Version.
 And the Petal Burst embossing folder.
 And a close up of the center.
