Sunflower Birthdays - KSS 10+10

I am using today's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps to create some cheerful birthday cards for two of my dear friends who are celebrating this week. I sure hope they like them!

To create these cards I used images from Multi Step Giant Sunflower and sentiments from Make a Big Statement and Simple Sentiments. For these designs, I substituted the stem from Multi Step Lilac to create a taller flower.

This is the color recipe I used for the sunflowers on both cards:

Sunflower - Layer 3 Memento Peanut Brittle, Layer 2 Memento Cantaloupe, Layer 1 Memento Dandelion, 4 Papertrey Ink Classic Kraft, 5 Memento Espresso Truffle

Leaves - Layer 3 Memento Olive Grove, Layer 2 Memento Bamboo Leaves, Layer 1 Memento Bamboo Leaves

Lady Bug - Layer 3 Memento Tuxedo Black, Layer 2 Memento Lady Bug, Layer 1 Memento Rhubarb Stalk

10 Minute Card
The only embellishment on this card is the Martha Stewart punched edge.

20 Minute Card
For the next card I sponged a ground and sky background and added a die cut fence from Impression Obsession. The grass images come from Multi Step Birch Trees and 3 Step Honey Bunny. The sunflower, leaves and stem were fussy cut and mounted on dimensionals over the fence.
