Sunflower beauty

Good morning Ladies! Isn't it wonderful to wake up with the sun shining so brightly :) a perfect day to go outside and walk around or just ride on a bicycle and breathe some fresh air...enjoying the scenery and sounds of nature.

Today's card theme has something to do with the sun...a very simple summer inspired card.

Have you ever wondered why sunflowers follow the sun? Well, the action is called Phototropism :) want to know more about it? Just ask Mr. Google and he'll give you the answer lol!

Ribbon - RAK from Gemma
Beaded flower center - handmade by me
Flat back pearls & Doily - from local craft store
Patterned Paper - DCWV
Cardstock - Ace "white"
Stamp - Inkadinkado "summer assortment"
Flower - Prima "e line flowers white"
Flower Pistils - from AAD Boutique
Touch Markers - Shin Han Art Int'l Inc.
