Sunflower bouquet

   The Crafty Cardmakers challenge for the next fortnight would like you to add some texture.
   In my stash I came across this flower decoupage which I had made several years ago and done nothing with so I decided it was about time I made use of it.
   I matted hand made paper onto lilac card and then white card. The decoupaged image I matted onto brown core'dinations cardsock and also used this cardstock for the die cut sentiment. Using card candi which I coloured using Promarkers and trimming some of them I added a flower to the right hand bottom corner. I then added Stickles to all the flower centres.
