Great Impressions challange

                                          July Challenge: Use Your Favorite Stamp

This is a new challenge for me and I don't have any Great Impression Stamps, but my good friend has just been made a Member of the Design Team and since she has encouraged me in the past, I want to support her in her work. 
You may have guessed her name by this time, if not, it is Donna Phelan!  I am so happy for her and she will do a great job.

You can fine the challenge Here and it is a monthly challenge, so you have time to enter.

For this challenge you are to use your favorite stamp.  That was the hard part, as there are so many!
I looked into my gallery at STV and noted that I often use the Sunflower stamp from Melanie Muenchinger.  So I made this simple card for this challenge. 

Charcoal Brown heavy weight card stock for the base
White layering weight for the oval
Spellbinder Floral Oval die
Stamp set GKD Stately Flowers 5
Ribbon from my stash

Thanks for stopping by and as always I do appreciate your comments.
