Spread Sunshine

I made this card for the challenge over at Less is More, How Charming! Had to mimic a charm with this pretty Stampin' Up brad as I didn't have any actual charms in my craft supplies. I was so taken by Chrissie's card with the Cuttlebugged flowers and leaves that I went right out to my yard and created the background circle on my card the same way.
Items used: Inkadinkadoo bird stamp, Hero Arts sentiment stamp, SU brad, flowers and leaves and my Cuttlebug.

Isn't nature wonderful Lucille!
Your background circle is fabulous, the colours are simply gorgeous!
It's a superb technique isn't it!
Your overstamping is very neat across the two levels too... no loss of image!
Great job!
Thanks so much
