Sunflower smiles

I recently colored up my first Paper Nest Doll and got hooked on these cute gals, so decided to color up another one and create an autumn card.  The side border is a punch and I added gems to the center of each pattern.   The pretty sunflower bg paper was given to me by my friend, Cathy (thank you SO much), and the pretty yellow bow was made/tied so perfectly for me by my best friend, Gail, since she knows I just mangle them!!
I don't know what I'd do without my stamping friends, for sure -- how about you??
