Sunflower Thinking of You

Although  I missed the Power Poppy challenge featuring this stamp, I managed to download the stamp while it was 50% off.   Such beautiful renderings--love PP's images!  A coworker's uncle passed unexpectedly so I kept the design very simple and used a deeper background color than I would normally.  It also works to focus the eye on the image.  Do you like the background paper's texture--sort of waffle?  I picked some more up in white this weekend.  It's perfect for interest but not too much.

The Details:  Power Poppy Sunflower Power, Clearly Besotted Thinking of You sentiment, PTI 140lb white cardstock base, Esse brown cardstock (I think), Copic E17, E34, E39, E59 YG13 (center), Y11, Y15, Y18, Y19, Y24, Y27 (sunflower), YG00, G21, G24, G28, YG13 (greenery), B0000 (background), VersaFine Onyx Black, Simon Says stitched rectangle die
