vintage sunflower

I'm back using the Sunflower background stamp again and still loving it! I stamped the
sunflower with Early Espresso Classic Ink onto the piece of  Beau Chateau Designer
Series paper that has the chicken wire image. Next, I placed a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock
inside the Stripes embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot to create the wonderful
background. Both layers were then adhered to the Early Espresso card base.
With Early Espresso Seam Binding Ribbon , I used the "ruffle" technique to add some interest.
I stamped the greeting from Kindness Matters onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. Next I used the Scallop Oval Punch with the Early Espresso cardstock to create a layer for the greeting. ( To make more of a statement I popped up the greeting with Dimensionals on top of the scalloped layer.)
I felt this card still needed something, so I added one of the Naturals buttons threaded with
a strip of Early Espresso cardstock. Love it!
