Under the Tuscan Sun......

.....one of my favorite movies, and evidently a favorite of Julie's at the Play Date Cafe.  In her tour around the world we are visiting Positano, Italy this week.  Here's the inspiration picture.  Wouldn't we all love to be here?


All I had to hear was the name of that movie, and my mind went immediately to the wonderful scenery in that film, most especially the fields of sunflowers.  So here is my entry for this challenge. 



This is an old Anita's stamp and I decided to paper-piece it using the challenge colors.  My sentiment is part of a clear Hero Arts set, CL272 All Occasion Messages.  I used mostly papers from Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety and Material Girl mini decks.
