Sunflower Sympathy

This week, I've been working on some flowery cards using some heat emboss techniques.  The sunflower was stamped with the VersaMark pad, and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I should have taken a picture at this step, because the sunflower looked very pretty, just a darker yellow tone on the So Saffron card stock.  I went one step further and used some sponges to bring out a little more color to the sunflower.  The sponged colors get into all the negative parts of the stamped image, the parts that don't hold the embossing powder, and give it a subtle pop.  
I had a piece of burlap ribbon beside me, that was already shredded from a past experiment gone bad.  (I love some burlap, but that stuff is a mess!)  It was just what I needed to finish off the card.
