Friendship Is The Sweetest Flower!!!!

Good morning everyone!!! I have had fun the past few days being outside and puttering in my flower beds so when we got the details on this weeks challenge for the PCP Group i{heart}copics my mind went to flowers and seeds.  We each got to pick a template from our friends over at Pixel Geek Designs.  I chose the crayon box.  Now I haven't worked with templates that often so indeed this was a challenge for me.  I used the beautiful paper I got at i{heart}paper called  What A Hoot Caboodle Kit.  It came with various two sided papers, die cut stickers and some die cut shapes for scrap booking. Once I put my crayon box together I decided I wanted to keep the embellishing simple.  I dug through my stamps and found a Stampin' Up kit I have had for eons called Friendship Gardens and decided it was perfect.

There are two FREE templates available for you to use and try out. And this week's prize is one free template of the winner's choosing!
Pillow Box (scroll down about halfway) and House Box (scroll down about 3/4 of the way).

Use either one of these or any other 3D template to create a project for this week's challenge

A few guidelines...

- Copic Markers must be used somewhere on the project - either to color an image or an embellishment.

- Entry deadline is 10pm PST on Thursday March 25th

- When uploading to the PCP gallery, please label projects for this challenge with IHC031910


I of course colored my image in with copics which you can get at great prices at i{heart}papers. Kate also carries copic cardstock!!! After I was finished coloring her I dusted her flowers with all different colors of stickles.  I really wish the picture showed it better.  I made the tag to go with from the same set!

After I was finished puting everything together I put the sparkle grass inside and of course my seeds to send to my friend to start her garden.  Do you see the paper color from the inside.  I love how it matched all the colors in the flowers!!!  There you have it!!! Friendship is the sweetist flower and I will help my friend start her own flower garden with my crayon box full of seeds, so everytime she walks by or smells the flowers she will remember how much she means to me!
