Sunflower Teapot Birthday Wishes


Another cute image from Whimsy and Stars Studio.  With the cooler temps here thanks to Tropical Storm Lee, I have been thinking early Autumn.  The flower that comes to mind is the sunflower.  Such a beautiful early Autumn flower.  I had a lot of fun with this image, adding lots of my beloved buttons.  The embossed leaves are a new embossing folder that I picked up at Hobby Lobby recently and have been wanting to use it.  This color combo is my very favorite colors...they make me happy :)
