Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  My favorite day of the week!  Today I have a Flourishes image to share using two challenges. 
First I used the Deconstructed Sketch #86 then added in this weeks Color Throwdown.  I love the colors Denise Marzec picked!

Next I chose A Year in Flowers 1 and stamped the crocus image on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copics.  I shaded around the image with coordinating Prismacolor pencils and oms.

I used a Spica Pen in purple on the flowers and green on the leaves for a little sparkle and pop.  The background panel was embossed with a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Ornamental Iron.   The image and mat were also cut with Classic Circles large and Big Scalloped Circles.  I embellished with Prima flowers and buttons tied with kraft jute and a piece of adhesive Kaiser Pearl Strip
on the sentiment which is from the Tag Lines set.
Here you can see a bit of the sparkle better.
