Inspired by my blog header

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to create something inspired by our own blog header!


This is a great way for me to give credit to Ingrid at Cute Blog Layouts, from whom I get many of my blog headers (she also makes blog backgrounds, and all are free, just for the asking!).  She has a wonderful assortment, and it's so easy to change them when she's doing all the designing!

Looking at my header, this Hero Arts twig and daisy wreath immediately came to mind, so I started with that, and added some PTI sunflowers:
