Good morning and happy Friday to you all! I just love how today's card has turned out, and can't wait to show it to you.

I used the big sunflower from the Shy Bear Butterfly Catchers drawn by Lynne Stansbery and paired it up with the beautiful calligraphy Friends Are Flowers that Roann Mathias did. I love this saying, and Roann's calligraphy is so pretty! It lends an elegance to it don't you think? Both are available now at Squigglefly.
I printed the sunflower image twice and cut out one leaf and several of the petals to pop up for dimension. The sky is chalked, and the flower was colored with the following Copic colors
YG21,23,25,17 - for the grass and leaves
Y13, 17, 19 - for the flower petals
E15, 19 - for the flower center
I matted it in black and then created an easel card to display it. This qualifies it for the Totally Stampalicious challenge too! The inside sentiment is a clear Wordsworth stamp, and I punched some little flowers and colored their centers with a brown marker. The border punch is from Martha Stewart and is mainly there to hold the card open.
Tomorrow is supposed to be another Squigglefly image release, and it should be awesome since the mini release didn't happen last week due to technical difficulties. I have my fingers crossed that Ashley will be able to get this week's release out without any problems - so cross yours too! In the meantime, enjoy the sneak peeks from the design team!
I hope you have a fabulous day, and thanks for looking!
