Half a flourish

Not long ago I expressed a wish for a more delicate flourish die - wish granted!  This is from a Die Namics flourish die - part of a prize from My Favorite Things!  How fortunate for me.  However, I only used half of it so the image was not covered.  The flourish, the collage look of the image, and the sponging are all influenced by Tim Holtz' style.  I used pale gold and rust for fall - as well as the sunflowers. That stamp, by Inkadinkadoo, is one I have had for several years, and tend to neglect.  I stretched the sketch due to the size of the image.  The bg. is embossed with the Vines folder(Quickcutz).  That layer as well as the stamped layers are sponged with ColorBox Chestnut ink.  The flowers are from a little strip I have had a very long time.
