One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

CAS Watercolour JUNE Challenge & The Flower Challenge #9

And nothing says summer to me more than beautiful sunflowers!
I actually gold embossed the flowers and leaves and then used my zigs to watercolor them with yellow and oranges.  My sentiment is from PTI Quilted: Summer which I thought was very appropriate for this challenge.
The flowers are from Lawn Fawn: Our Friendship Grows
I was thinking of using the blue zig to color around the flowers, but I chickened out!
I am also entering this card in a new to me challenge called The Flower Challenge!
That is right up my alley because I LOVE making flower cards!
Happy weekend friends!
Heart Hugs, friends!
