The comment period will close on Monday, April 10th at 11:59pm. Winners will be announced thereafter on The Ton’s blog. 

Okay, I have three cards to share with you, let's get started!  First up is Sunflower Bouquet.  I've been smitten with the projects I keep seeing using coloring pencils on kraft.  Something that I don't think of doing, so I tried it out for today!


I love how the yellow POPS!  I'm a huge fan of sunflowers!  Yellow is such a happy color, I love it!

Next up is the Wildflower Banner set:


After I colored up the beautiful image with my Zig Clean Color Markers, I decided to pop it on a yellow + white gingham panel....perfect!  This is a definite 'must-have' set with all the awesome sentiments, it's a great year round set!

My last card uses the gorgeous Dearest Peony set:


Originally I was going to use the watercolored background with the Sunflower Bouquet image but changed my mind.  I decided to heat emboss the Dearest Peony image in white right on top of the watercoloring.  I love the look, how about you?



Bonus points that it is a birthday card, I'm trying to build up my birthday card stash.

Next up on the hop is the wonderful Eunji Jung!  If you get lost along the way, The Ton has the complete hop listing!
