Distress the edges of the card with the Walnut Stain distress ink. Taking the swirled stamp image from the Sunflower Bouquet set, mask and gold emboss on the card front.  Stamp so the swirls from the Sunflower Bouquet image will peak out from under the frames. 

(see how the swirls peace out from under the frame and flowers)

Do the same to the side step and one of the small frames. Gold emboss stamping the Sunflowers and die cut with matching die. Gold emboss the Veggie Collage, the banner image (masking the sentiment), garlic bulb from the Jug of Herbs and the butterfly from the Berries and Peaches set. Fussy cut and color all the stamped images with the distress inks. Make up the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Mask the Veggie Collage stamp so you can use the MAY YOUR BLESSINGS on the banner and the BE MANY AND YOUR TROUBLES FEW on the right hand bottom side of the card front in black ink. Adhere the frames to the card front. 

(see how all the layers are placed...have fun with this one)
I sure did!

Adhere the Veggie Collage to the frame. Adhere the garlic, butterfly and the banner. Add the Sunflowers and vines. To finish the card add stickles to the butterfly wings and the vines.

I love the gold embossing...I find it makes all the stamping and die cutting richer...thus your art work even better than you think!
Food for thought.....
