Two Challenges in One

Our monthly card swap challenge set by Rainmac over at the Crafty Place was entitled 'Here Comes the Sun' and ScattyJan at the MSE set her challenge as something musical.  Well, the song 'I Can See Clearly Now' by Johnny Nash had been rattling around in the (fairly empty) brainbox for a couple of days so I've combined the two challenges into one card.

I fell in love with this House Mouse image stamped by Rusty for me and I adore sunflowers in all the gorgeous yellow and oranges and reds that are grown now.  I hope Julie likes it.  The paper and the punches used on the flower are by Stampin' Up supplied by Monica and I used some Bazzill cardstock from my stash.
