here is what i've created with the new sunflower #643 set -

as usual i started with a white cardstock, which i sprayed with yellow, green and blue memories mists. after the colours have dried, i added a layer of stamped images, using SNS #606 journal mixed media stamp set with blue and green MEMENTO INK.

finally, i doodled the brown frames around the edge of the cardstock and added the circle pattern using SNS #606 journal mixed media stamp set and a brown MEMENTO INK.

i added paper strips from PRIMA marketing "sun kissed" pattern paper, which i punched with MARTHA STEWART "doily lace' edge punch. i added a strip of crochet lace ribbon dark brown to decorate my page.

i stamped the sunflowers on a white cardstock, using #643 sunflower stamp set and VERSAMARK ink. then i heat embossed the set with SNS EP187 teddy brown. after the embossing powder has cooled down, i coloured the flowers with COPIC sketch markers.

to finish off my flowers, i added G2012 bronze splendor glitter in the middle. i used sakura glue pen to adhere the glitter to the cardstock.

to finish off my design, i stamped the sentiment from the #643 sunflower stamp set on random places and heat embossed it with SNS EP187 teddy brown.

wonder which designer contains the GRAND PRIZE this month?
