FLLCAUG11, shades of sunset

Our challenge over at Flourishes is shades of sunset. Pinks, oranges etc and I thought this paper and flowers fit this challenge so well.  This beautiful sun flower is from Flourishes and I colored with a mixture of copics. I used yellows, mustard yellows, peaches and white acrylic paint to color the petals, colored the center with browns and then covered it with flower soft, also from Flourishes.  The fence die is from Cheery Lynn designs, MS butterfly punches and ferns and a prima flower and DP.

So very pretty Karen! I just love everything about it but particularly the sunflower! I think that would have to be my favorite flower!
