Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Pop Pop Pop

Welcome back to our second inspiration challenge of the month. This time round we are popping with fun- sorry, couldn't resist ;)   The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge.

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch as it had a nice big circle to play with and I had sunflowers on the mind (don't ask me how I got from popcorn to sunflowers LOL).

Used Clearly Besotted's Blomoing Marvelous and matching dies (love this sunflower image!) added a wood grain embossed background for some texture and finished things off with a bit of twine.

  Pop, Pop, Pop

From popcorn to sunflowers? Makes sense to me - and your card is an outstanding translation of the inspiration photo! The big sunflower truly is 'blooming marvelous'!
