More Kitchen Sink Fun!

This first card today was created for Technique Challenge 318 hosted by the talented Joan Erwin. During our recent road trip through Central Texas, Joan invited Liz and I to stop by her stamp studio for a visit! What a great time we had seeing all her latest creations and talking stamping!!

For today's challenge called Follow the Edge, she asked that we trim one edge of the card following the stamped image. As you can see, I used the Kitchen Sink Giant Sunflower.
