I don't know what it is about sunflower images that I love but there is certainly something! I think it is the bright happy yellow colors contrasted with the warm comforting brown tones that are set against the refreshing greens *okie thinks she sounded a little artsy fartsy with her description*.
At any rate, I saw this sunflower paper in the stack of the K & Co. pad I was using, remember I mentioned it had like 5 or 6 different collections in it, and I knew I had to do a gift bag with it! The striped paper on the left and the bottom patterned paper were also included in the collection.
The colors between the patterned paper of sunflowers and the sunflower I cut actually look better in person than the picture. But as we all know most things always look better in person than they do pictures. Well except when we take pictures of ourselves and airbrush off the wrinkles and zits, then we probably do look better in a picture than in person.
I made the sunflower file quite sometime ago using an image trace, and have been dying to use it and this was the perfect opportunity to cut that sucker and see how it turned out, which I think it turned out rather lovely...don't you?
