Card - Sunflower

I'm trying to make more use of my embossing folders and dies at the moment.  This card uses both.  The sunflower was cut using dies meant for making a daisy - I think they are by xcut, but not 100% sure.  I cut the flowers from handmade mulberry paper and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist (Sunflower).  The centre of the sunflower is from a really old Quickutz die, which was also sprayed with Glimmer Mist (Tattered Leather).  The stem and petal were cut off a Memory Box flower die.  The embossing folder is by Darice, and the stamp in the background is an old Stampin' Up definitions one which is now retired.  The seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts, this was coloured with Walnut Stain Distress ink.
