I LOVE this sunflower!!!  And the new Pure Luxury Dark Sage is so perfect with the Dark Chocolate and pop of yellow sunflower!!!  I used Wisteria Lane dp and the Scor Pal to make a lightly embossed background.

Next is Theresa's Vogue Vases 2.......

How about just a touch of pink.....mostly having fun with the Winter Whimsy dp.   Just paper pieced the little vase and kept the card CAS....but I just can't have flat white space...so I had to emboss it with one of my fave folders, Swiss Dots!!  

 Now check out the amazing creativity of the rest of the Design Team.....
