 Here's my card to start you on your way!
(Small Flowers)

I really wanted to do something different with these flowers and I thought a "wreath" look might work. First I penciled a circle, about the size I wanted for my wreath. Then I stamped my flowers going around the circle, erasing the pencil marking after. I used Copic markers R89, E07, E02 for the flowers and YG 99, YG97, YG93 for the leaves. I cut out the wreath and stamped "Hello" in the center, from MFP stamp set "Friends". I used a gold sparkle pen for the flower centers. I added the thin elastic band (I had from a store bought card from a friend) at the bottom. I think the wood look background paper worked nicely. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit all the blogs so you don't miss out on their wonderful samples!! We have a great design team!
