Faux Tile Tutorial Time Challenge

Tutorial Time Challenge this week on Speedy TV is by Katie Wenger.
If there is one thing I like to do the most is to learn new technique...
This technique was fun and for the first time I used a simple
sunflower stamp.  I like that my ribbon matches the petals of the flower.
I also used a texture background paper that went well for this card.
Give this challenge a try and post it on the forum.
