First, I used Spellbinders Dazzling Dots embossing folder to emboss the panel. I then spritzed Distress Oxide Spray Broken China on my mat and I pressed the panel in the oxide. I used my heat tool to dry the panel.

Next, used Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Sunflower die to die-cut the layers from Lessebo Canary cardstock. The leaves were cut from Lockwood Green and the center from Bagdad Brown Cardstock.
