Flourishes Favorites

Good Friday morning!  Today at Flourishes we are playing favorites…and that means we get to pick our favorite image (one of the many favorites!) for todays card. 
I picked two today…just the favorites of the day, because I have no less than a dozen, maybe more, favorites at any given time :)

With spring finally upon us and getting the planting beds ready for seeds and seedling, I knew Seeds of Friendship would be a perfect set to start with.  First I stamped the seed packet from Seeds of Friendship then I masked the edges and stamped a sunflower image from Sunflowers.  Then I masked the small sunflowers and stamped the larger one.   I colored all of the images with Copic markers then shaded with Prismacolor pencils and oms.    I added a little bit of dark brown glitter to the sunflower centers and used a clear glaze pen on the lady bug.    All of the paper is from the MME On The Bright Side 6x6 pad.  I used some kraft jute and a big button to accent the banner strip.
Check out all of the wonderful favorites from our design team today!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
