Cherished Friendship

     Good Monday morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We received RAIN over the weekend!  The temperature yesterday was in the 70's.  What a blessing!
     Today's card uses two different sets of Flourishes' stamps, Zinnias and Gerber Daisies.  The papers are Basic Grey pb&j collection.  The zinnias are colored with Copics and cut with a Spellbinders die.  I used an airbrush for the shading.  The zigzag die is MFT.  EK Success makes up the bottom punch.
      The sketch is this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  
     Flourishes is celebrating their 5th Birthday with several challenges.  One of them is a Sweet Celebration.  You can use an image or sentiment that is sweet.  I think this sentiment is so sweet it would melt some one's heart.  
     I cherish your friendship and your comments!  Have a blessed day!
