Just Add Ink #53 Inspiration Challenge - Timeworn Sunflower

Hi there,
Today's post is for this weeks Inspiration Challenge at Just Add Ink.  I have pulled out a stamp set that I acquired some years ago "Stampin' Up's Definately Decorative Summer Sunflower" that I am ashamed to say I have very rarely used. I was inspired to imitate the sunflower and used this old stamp set from the year 2000. I layered the Sunflower and the book, cut a sliver of card to thread through the button and curl. The Designer Paper is from Stampin' Up's Timeworn Collection - Weathered also retired. This is a very timeless approach to the inspiration, I do have a more modern idea which I might come back with later.

Stamps: S/U's DD Summer Sunflower (R), En Francais BG, Papertrey Ink Little Lady
Card: Whisper White,Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cake Crumb, S/U's Timeworn Collection DSP Weathered (R)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Creamy Caramel (R), Early Espresso, Cake Crumb, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz
Embellishments: Brads, Button, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon

Thanks for taking a peek today.
