Create a background

I am joining in the Lawnscaping challenge once again.  The current challenge #98 is to create a background

I used the first Lawn Fawn stamp set I owned for the sentiment, and another favorite for the background.  I heat embossed in white the sunflowers on watercolor paper, then I added in color.  Once the panel was dry I trimmed it to fit an A2 card base.

For the sentiment, I cut a notebook paper shape, and added the sentiment, inked it with some distress ink and then embellished it with another sunflower and two leaves.  I added glossy accents and Wink of Stella to the embellishing flower and leaves.
