What a beautiful sunflower and it will make great cards for summer or the upcoming Fall season.
My card is simple, colored the image with Copics and layered on black cardstock with that on top of Houndstooth2 from The Paper Studio. Well, doesn't look like houndstooth to me, but just a checked piece...just giving the facts on the paper. :-)  I added some Stickles to the bees and I'm finished.

Next is Toni and I'm sure she'll have a wonderful creation to show you.
