Sunflower Buggies

Well here am I, making a bright and cheery summery card, and what did we get again last night - several inches more snow! Lucky for us, daytime temperatures seem to be shifting it quickly, but when we first woke this morning the garden and plants were under a good 2 inches of snow again!

Back to my card however - and yup, I now have a new tube of silicone glue so it's been in action again!  My card this time features an Meljen's image called Sunflower buggies.  Again the papers are Nitwits by LOTV combined with kraft.  The banner is the lovely die cut from La-la Land and the card is completed with faux stitching & pearls.
