I started out by stamping and coloring my background with the sunflower stamp from the Autumn Pops.

This is what I ended up with!
 "Be Happy" is from the Be Kind stamp. The green decorative border below it is part of the die cut from the Daisy Garden. I die cut  Sunflower Die 3 times. Distress ink was sponged onto the flowers petals. 

Did you know that Serendipity is carrying some paper from Bo Bunny?

 Japanese Maple is the September stamp of the month.
