Simple Sunflower

Good Afternoon!

*¨*•♫♪*¨*•♫♪ We're Having A Heat Wave ♪♫•*¨*•☼*¨*•♫♪ A Tropical Heat Wave*¨*•♫♪*¨*•♫♪
It's warmed up to 9 degrees.....yippee!
This card is for the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Paper Crafting Alphabet.

I used the first 3 letters of my first name: 
D  Add detail with a white gel pen or paper piercing
O  Incorporate some kind of Ombre look or effect
N  Try a new product that you have purchased but haven't used as yet
Papertrey Ink products; Simple Sunflower stamp set and Chevron Cover Plate and Swoosh die used.  I went over each little dot on the sunflower petals with my White Gel Pen.  My Ombre effect is the Designer Paper I used, by Craft Smith, Sea Glass, which is new, bonus.  My new product is the Poppy Stamp die, Verona Flourish, which also has some Paper Piercing as an extra bonus. 

A sweet little card for a sweet little friend who lives in Florida....LUCKY!
Have a sunny and warm day!
