Sunflower

A Thank You card, which has finally reached its destination.  I think it may have gone round the world several times, the time it took to arrive!! LOL!


I started by making a white frame using two of the Memory Box 'Stitched Circle Layers' dies.  The embossing was done with a Creative Expressions 'Checkboard' e/f and white card.  Using a brayer and green Distress Ink, I inked over the embossing, before attaching the embossed card behind the circle aperture in the white frame.  This was layered on a green MB 'Stitched Circle' die cut.   The Sunflower is a Cheery Lynn die and for the leaf I used an Xcut punch which embosses as well as punches.  The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers 'Doodled Flowers' set of stamps, stamped using the same ink pad I used to ink the embossed panel.

I am joining in the following challenges:
