LSC239 - Sunflower SOS!

I had fun today playing the LSC239 on Splitcoast. Today's challenge was to make a SOS! card. You can check out the challenge HERE. My SOS keywords are:
S - Simply Sunflowers
O - Oval
S - Sanded Dots
For my "S", I used the delightful Fall Sunflower (#FSF-01-free) digital image from KLM Digital Designs. My image was colored with Copic markers. I went over my sunflower image with a VersaMark pen and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Although you can't see it in the photo, my image has a nice sheen achieved by the clear embossing.
For my "O", I used a Nestabilites oval die to cut out and dry emboss my image.
For my second "S", I embossed my DCWV textured background paper with a Sizzix big dot embossing folder and used a sanding block to bring out the white core.
I finished my card with some new SU! ribbon and a MS sunflower embellishment. Hope you like what I came up with and have a wonderful weekend!
