French Country and Flying Unicorn Adornments!

No words except to echo fellow creative team member, Shona, with Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!  I have been on a G45 French Country kick, it is one of my favorite G45 collections ever!! The Flying Unicorn has French Country as well as many other hard to find G45 collections.

I combined French Country with some sassy handmade sunflowers and the brand new, second release of Flying Unicorn Adornments.  These flowers are oh so beautiful!!  They will be in the store within the next day or two so keep your eyes open!

I love the rich colors in this collection and the beautiful sunflower theme that runs throughout this collection.  I made the sunflowers using Spellbinder's Sunflower Set Two and then complemented the sunflowers with new Flying Unicorn Adornments flowers. 

I layered two different sizes of the diecut sunflowers to create my sunflowers and then filled the centers with microbeads.  The metal leaves on the left  are actually a 4 petal flower that I cut apart, I thought they made pretty leaves!  The sunflower centers are microbeads.

I used one of my favorite things to treat my ScrapFx chippy, Stampendous Aged Marine embossing enamel. 

The sweet little bird is from the first release of Flying Unicorn metal adornments.
