Burlap and Sun ~ Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to May's edition of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  This month we're all getting punchy!  We're here to show off our punches with some fun and fabulous punch art creations.
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number seven on the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop -  If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
I've been wanting to make a new summer-time wreath for my front door and what says summer better than sunflowers?!?  I was really bummed about the Blossom Builder punch being retired, but then I remembered that it was still available in MDS and I could use my e-cutter to cut them out....WOOHOO!!! Wanna know what's even better?  You can make the size of the punch bigger or smaller in MDS to fit your needs.   With a few clicks of my mouse, I had a full sheet of petals and quickly cut them out to create these bright and cheerful sunflowers.
I put the flowers on an easy, and fun to make, burlap wreath (thanks to my BFF, Erica, for bringing me the supplies from the big city craft saved my bacon friend!)  I still feel like this may need a little something else, but haven't quiet figured out what yet.  Feel free to share any suggestions when you leave me some love :-)
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Other Supplies ~ MDS Blossom Builder Punch, Silhouette e-cutter, ALL Circle Punches, Basics Glimmer Brads
