Susie is our hostess for Teapot Tuesday this week - her challenge (along with a link for the tutorial I used) can be found HERE.
This is my go-to stamp for that technique, and I spent about an hour scraping all the foam off to unmount it when I was having trouble stamping it well. After colouring, I sponged with colours while still in the die, and stamped the sand from Shore Thing in green across the bottom. Looked for a suitable sentiment and came up with this one. The ladybird isn't actually one layer, I cut it out from one of the failed stampings, shaped it with a stylus and popped it on, then adding Glossy Accents.

Sunflowers are sure to bring a smile because they are one of the happiest flowers there is. Love your coloring and that adorable bug is just the perfect topper. Ladybugs and Sunflowers -- you hit a home run. Wonderful card.

Oh wow Sabrina this looks amazing. Your colouring is gorgeous as always and I love how you sponged the background by leaving the die in place. I was hoping someone would do one layer paper tole, it looks fabulous. As a card maker Janet will love all the extra elements like the terrific stitched DP. Hope your finger tips are recovering...well worth the effort. Thanks for bringing this wonderful bloom to the teaparty Sabrina.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
