Little Claire Likes - Sunflowers!

Good morning and welcome to another Monday 'Little Claire Likes' project.

Our project today is a sunny 'Z' fold card using the gorgeous stamp set


This set is on offer at the special price of only £6.50 (usually £8.99) until Thursday, 11th December 2014 or whilst we have the stock.
  This is Heidi's favourite stamp set of ours and on her card today, includes all of the images in the set. She has stamped the flourish image down one side of each section and has added some glossy accents to the centres of the Sunflowers.

The two smaller sentiments used on the card come from another great stamp set - 'Changing Birdhouses'.  The products highlighted below, can be purchased from the website. Just click on the links.

(6) Again, turn on side, make a notch at 2 3/8" centrally, then cut off piece as before.
