Country French Sunflower

I wanted an excuse to play with a new-to-me (retired) Flourishes stamp set called Sunflowers. 

Since sunflowers are quite cheery, I thought I should make this into a Get Well card.  The Graphic 45 patterned paper even has some sunflowers on it, along with handsome roosters.  Suddenly, this felt very "French country" just with those two additions.  I added the stamped, colored, trimmed sunflower to a mini Pierced Traditional Tag (My Favorite Things) and topped it with another die cut:  Tiny Tags by Papertrey Ink, using a sentiment from a stamp set of the same name.  A tiny twine bow accents it.

There are some copper and espresso brown sequins on here, from Pretty Pink Posh, but they get a little lost on that busy patterned paper.

This card has a late-summer feel, also, doesn't it?  I'll miss some things about summer, but certainly not the extreme heat and humidity.  Blecch.  I don't like that at all.

Thanks a bunch for coming by today!  Be blessed!
