And here's a side view for it :  
             So as you can see I have decided to play with my distress stains again and I have colored the flowers and the punched laces using them and have used some distress inks to highlight the flower as well...The centre large flower I have made using the Cheery lynn sunflower die....I had been eyeing this die for quite some time and when I won a $20 gift certificate ,this was the first purchase I made using it....But for those of you who are interested in buying this, Crafter's Corner also has it...You can check it out HERE
