Mother's Day Adirondack Chair Scene

Got creative, thinking outside the box, with an svgcuts SVG file, Adirondack Chair. It is meant to be a box card but I wanted to make it be an actual chair so I gave it a seat.

Photographed by some Sunflowers I rescued from Calloway's Nursery (they were being put into the compost bin since they were damaged; thus free for me).
