sending smiles in a friendship jar

I finally caved and started buying the Friendship Jar series, LOL! I've always thought they were fun, but resisted "going down that road"... until now. I started with the original set and the Spring Fillers. Ohhhh, how I have coveted that beautiful tulip bouquet! So of course, that was the first thing I did. I also used the new Little Labels set and die. I wanted to keep the sentiment small and not cover up the flowers that I worked so hard to color!


Check out the striped lower half of the card base... look familiar? I used an image from Half and Half, stamped across the bottom, to add that pattern.


Here is a close-up of the flowers, which I colored with Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise copics (for the most part).


Thanks for looking!

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the colors. I have been tossing around the idea of "going down the Friendship Jar road" also. You may have just convinced me.
