A Garden of Sunflowers

I participated in an image swap on SCS hosted by Stampin Ninja (aka Christine). I received my images in the mail yesterday (all 66 of them!!) and I couldn't wait to start using them. This image is called Sunflowers by Great Impressions. I needed a thank you card for my assistant principal for all the things she did to spoil us for Secretary's Week.
All papers are SU- Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie. The white CS is GP110. The image is colored using Copic Markers. The Chocolate Chip layer is embossed using the Thank You embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. The checked ribbon and brads are from Michaels, the flowers are large and small Primas and are popped up on dimensionals.

This is another card I made using the same image (in this swap we got 2 of each image and in some cases on smaller stamps, we had 2 images on one 1/4 sheet of paper for a total of 4- this was one of those images). I will be sending this card to Miss Laura, my Senior Friend.
Again, all papers are SU- Wild Wasabi, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Dashing DSP. The white is GP110. Again, I used my Copics to color the image and then used Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Creamy Caramel by SU to speckle the image because I thought it was to stark white against the Dashing DSP. I used the same gold brads and Primas as on the card above, popping the flowers up on dimensionals.
I can't wait to get back into my stamping room to play with the other images that I got in the swap! Look for more cards using those image in the coming days!!
