Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Sunflower Surprise



Welcome back to another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge! This time our theme is "Sunflower Surprise" and it is sponsored by Clearly Besotted Stamps.  The Show Stopper for this challenge will win their Blooming Marvelous stamp set and matching dies!  Worth playing for alone!

Here is the wonderful inspiration picture we get to work from for this challenge. 


Love the images in Blooming Marvelous and the matching dies cut like butter!  All I can say is - love!  Snuck in a few polka dots for good measure along with some wood grain texture, a multi-looped, twine bow as per the raffia ones on the chairs, and a few sequins to keep me trendy wink, wink!
