Curtain Call- Thank you Sunflowers

I am really diggin' this go round with the Curtain Call Challenge blog. The inspiration piece is  a gorgeous table setting of sunflowers and natural colors (see below). I was really drawn to the greens in the photo. I paired it with the Retro Sketch81 and this card came to be 

Here is the inspiration photo.

I played up the green and kraft and added a beautiful sunflower die. I reached for my Reverse Confetti  stamps, Whole Lotta Dots and Forever Fall. I know I keep saying it but I loooove that wood grain border. I stamped it three times in Kraft ink onto the kraft cardstock. I took care to start the stamp in a different position each time, so that sweet heart in the design was in a different spot each time. 

Following the Retro Sketch, I added the sunflower in Fuse Green cs and tied up a triple burlap bow to tuck behind the flower.  I used the large solid dots from Whole Lotta Dots for the circle panel on the sketch. 

I cut a few flags to show off my sentiment from Forever Fall. I stamped one on Gumdrop Green cs and then cut another one from cream colored burlap. My Die-namics dies came in handy for cutting these quick elements. 

I'm linking up to both of these challenges. You can find them here:
