Sending you Sunshine

I appear to be in my yellow phase lately!  Really, I'm beginning to look forward to fall, and golds and yellows are a good lead into it from summer.  The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week is to use embossing.  I decided to use these new (to me) Papertrey Ink sunflower stamps and after I'd stamped and cut them out, this houndstooth embossing folder seemed to be a good match to them, bringing to mind more textured clothing coming up as we get into fall......so here's my card:

CAS-ual Fridays Embossing

supplies: yellow/gold, white and brown cardstock, PTI Simple Sunflower set, Hero Arts butter bar mind-tone and Poppy chalk ink, Anita's Teddy Bear Brown ink, peeled paint distress ink, Cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder, natural twine



I'm also entering this card into the Moxie Fab World's Card Design Handbook challenge: Assymetry.
