So I love this challenge, in fact I have been saving these pictures for just the challenge that meets them. I made this card for my cousin's bridal shower a few weeks ago, she LOVES sunflowers.
I was playing around and realized that if you cross stitch the middles of the flowers they look like they have seeds and have texture, so that's what I did. I also made a few book marks as well for my cousin.
Here it is, in a few different shots.
Thanks to Carolyn V for the great shape idea for the card, I can't take credit for that, that was all her!
