Sunny Anniversary Wishes

Hello to all.  For this anniversary card, I was inspired by three challenges:  The Paper Players Challenge #217, the Try Stampin' On Tuesday Challenge #189 and The Card Concept Challenge #21 - country and sunflowers (I probably would choose the style shabby chic for this one).

Card Base:  Naturals White card stock.  I attached a piece of Moonlight designer paper after adding some jumbo brass eyelets.
Sunflower Mat:  Stamped the Hardwood stamp on Naturals White card stock with Mossy Meadow ink.  It was matted with Tangelo Twist card stock and attached to the card.
Sunflower:  Using the retired daisies die, I cut two large and one medium daisy from Hello Honey card stock.  The petals were sponged with Hello Honey ink.  I attached the three together with liquid glue.  The smallest daisy was cut twice from Tangelo Twist card stock, petals sponged, 
attached together and then added to the large daisy.  I used the distressing tool on some Mossy Meadow card stock.  I punched out a circle from Mossy Meadow, added some glue and attached my scrapings from the distressing.  I thought it would add a little dimension to the flower.  This was attached to the center of the flower.  The flower was then added to the card with Glue Dots.
Finishing Touch:  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped on Naturals White with Mossy Meadow ink and cut out with one of the Bitty Banners Framelits.  Cut another from Tangelo Twist to use as a mat.  It was curled a little with the bone folder and adhered using Glue Dots.
This card will be going out to our niece and her husband; unfortunately, it will arrive late.  It is the thought, right?  Thanks for stopping by.
