Today's set has some of the most amazing sunflowers in it.  Can you believe it?  I colored and cut out a couple of the sunflower heads and then accented with a little bee.  The country feel of the sunflowers called me to use some gingham on my card too.  I finished up by covering the flower centers with some crystal effects and some mini glass beads. 
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head to Tangii's blog now.
