Sunflower Wishes

I've been so busy getting my Dad's house ready for sale this week, its been totally nuts! I started this card last Thursday and I finally finished it last night. 

We're sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches this week and this is my take on the sketch. If I were to do the card again I'd make it a little narrower but otherwise I do like it.

I added clear micro beads to the centre of the flower and popped up a leaf as well as the whole flower.   Pop on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and give the challenge a try. I'm off to clean up the stuff I've been bringing home all week, lol!

I've entered this into:
