Hammock snooze

I'm tempted to join this Gruffie bear in his outdoor snooze, but it doesn't look as if there's any room left, so I'll just have to wait until he leaves - hahaha.   Since this stamp image is a bit on the larger size, I had to keep the embellishments to a minimum, but between the layers and popping the center up and adding the gems at the corners, I think it left just enough of the sunflower background paper to show through and highlight the image.
