Seeds of Love

Happy Monday! Today I have another MFTeaser for you -- this time it's the set Sow Seeds of Love, illustrated by Annie LePoint. It's a beautiful image which could be used for just about anything.

I pulled the colors from the BasicGrey Lemonade paper, and I watercolored the image with an Aquapainter and SU! inks.

I took the seed theme literally, and I glued some real seeds to the corner of the image. I thought it was a fun little touch! :)

I finished the inside of the card and stamped the sentiment off-center at the bottom. There's still plenty of room for a personal note inside!

Please join me and the rest of the MFT DT for the Release Blog Hop tomorrow night! The fun will begin at Kim's Blog at 10:00 pm Eastern time. You won't want to miss it! Also, don't forget about the MFT Release Party Wednesday night from 8-10 pm at the MFT Member Company Forum.

I hope your week is off to a good start -- thanks for spending some time with me today!

Have a great day! :)
