Sunshiny Friday

Welcome to another Flourishes Friday Gang!  The Design Team is putting together some lovely inspiration for you today.  Today I have a Thank You card I made for the Pastor and Family that we stayed with in Mexico City.  They are SO dear to us.  


I was able to use the beautiful Sunflowers Set from Flourishes as well as just a part of the sentiment from the gorgeous Flourishes FLIP set this year.  I wanted to make something that had lots of warmth and vibrancy to reflect the Mexican culture.   Sorry for the bright sunshine and shadows in the photo, I had to take the pic quickly before we left on our trip.  


I went with some red tones and yellow for the flower petals in my Copic Markers, and then paired the image with the pretty papers from MME Rosy paper pack.  And then I added the pretty flower shaped button from the Rosy button accents in the store to match.   I've used some really pretty pleated Plisse Satin ribbon.  I've also used a number of Spellbinders dies, Nested Pennants, Labels Five Nestabilities, and Fair Isle Border Petites.  

And here's a picture of our wonderful friends on the day of their son's wedding.


Now head on over to see what the other awesome girls have been up to:


Hope to be back to some more regular creating and commenting next week, I'm still catching up!

Wow, totally gorgeous! This stamp has been on my wish list for so long, haven't gotten it yet. I think I'm too scared I won't color it right and do it justice, lol! One of these days I'll get brave enough. Yours is just beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend. :P)
