These Heidi Swapp flowers just screamed to be used as a flower that mimics the sun. One of my favorite hobbies (other than stamping of course) is photographing my garden flowers. My favorite perspective is the flower with the sky behind. I even won 3rd place in a national photo contest for a similar picture. You can see my 3rd place win at this link. http://www.gardeningclub.com/Contest...st_Winners.asp
The flower on this card also mimics a sun, and I even highlighted the clouds with pink ink to mimic the color you'd see reflected at sunrise or sunset.
Gold stickles are added to the center of the flower.

Fantastic card --- and thanks for including the details.
The gold stickled center is just an awesome touch but I think the touch of pink in the sky is my favorite part ('coz it's something I probably would not think to do and it adds so much more interest and depth to the card).
