Sunny Sunflower Tilda Tag and Caddy

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all doing well! My hubby planted some sunflowers in the yard at the beginning of the summer and the flowers bloomed a couple of weeks ago. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. They bring a smile to my face whenever I see them. Unfortunately, the sunflowers in my yard are already drying up, because of the very hot weather we having been here on the Coast of California. I'm really sad to see them go, but the birds are going to very happy to get the sunflower seeds sometime soon.
I would like to share with you something that I created with some sunflowers that I made. I used C.C. Designs - Sunflower Die to cut out the sunflowers from mulberry paper. I colored them using some chalk inks to match the Design Paper. I gave them a little shape using a ball burnisher from the McGill Flower Making Tool Kit.

For the Tag, I used Mini Tilda With Sunflowers. The sweet image was colored using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The Design Paper that I used is from Creative Imaginations - Samantha Walker Tea Blossom. The flowers are from Recollections. The ribbon and twine are from the Dollar Store.
The Caddy was made using Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die - Bag, Caddy #657123. I cut it out of Chipboard and the Design Paper. I cut an extra backing piece out of chipboard to put in the caddy, because I didn't want the side flaps to show.  The butterfly is from Making Memories.

Here is one of the Russian Mammoth Sunflowers in my yard.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Sorry it has been awhile since my last post.
Enjoy the last week of summer!
