Even though I don't usually make really fussy cards with lots of layers and embellishes, I have a difficult time keeping them simple, as in one layer.
Using a Spellbinders die to emboss around the image helps me accept the card as not so naked.
Image and sentiment are from GKD stamp sets. I love this stamp; I use it often. There are so many varieties of Rudebeckias and I really like their sunny, bright colors this time of year - one of the last flowers blooming in my flower beds.
