Sunflowers to brighten a dull day

Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

It rained all day yesterday and what is it doing today? ... raining!

So it's nice to use some sunflowers to brighten the day. What do you do with a piece of 8 x 8 paper that is a picture in itself and really doesn't need much added to it ... add a Papermania sunflower border, of course - and a sentiment panel.
