Picnic on the River

Something summery today, using my new Susan's Garden sunflower die that I picked up in Hobby Craft for a fiver, that's well under half price so I couldn't resist!  It takes a little while to cut and assemble all the pieces, (the petals are attached individually) but, if like me, you love making your own flowers rather than buying them, you'll enjoy constructing this beauty.  The Susan's Garden flower shaping tool kit comes in very for handy for making flowers, I can't recommend it highly enough.
 The sweet stamp is a Riverbank Revels one, I've coloured it with my Promarkers, I think the puppy and duckling are just so adorable, I hope they've got something nice in their picnic basket.
The papers I've used are Papermania Capsule Collection in Lemon Sorbet and Blueberry Pie.  The flowers are made from the same papers too, so that they match exactly, the smaller, blue flowers were made with my favourite Woodware punches, with Flower Soft for the centres.
To finish, I've added a trio of Papermania Parisian Blue buttons, yellow gems, and a couple of stick pins.
