Sunflower Circles with Blue

I've been making lots of sunshine cards lately, and I found another sunny opportunity in the circles trio for this week's challenge (fall to layout #73) on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog.  Usually I would have made my circles larger, to show the entire flower image, but I like the cropped, off-center results using the size in the sketch.  Thank you, Natasha, for inspiring my card!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) simply chartreuse (green) and stamper's select white.
  • Patterned papers are the gingham print from PTI spring rain (light blue) pattern pack (tone-on-tone prints - retired) and the bitty dot print from PTI blueberry sky (medium blue) bitty big pattern pack.
  • Dies are from PTI hello sunshine (1-1/4" circle) and double-ended banners.
  • The sentiment "sending sunshine" is from PTI keep it simple: encouragement, stamped with PTI orange zest ink cube.  
  • The flower petals are from PTI simple sunflower, stamped with PTI bright buttercup (yellow), orange zest, summer sunrise (yellow-orange) ink cubes.  The flower centers are the small dotted circle from PTI bits & buttons (retired), stamped with PTI simply chartreuse ink cube.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
