“The Sunflower is a favorite emblem of constancy”-----Thomas Bulfinch


Note:  click here to view Fanny’s Cuddle made for Cutters Creek Design Team Blog.


The following was created for McMahon Five Designs Design Team.


Today I bring a beautiful sunflower digital image by McMahon Five Designs.  I wanted to do another template using this image so I used my Ribbon Closure Box template.  It’s a very cute, simply made box  and just the right size for special treats.  And since the box creation went so well I thought I add one more project using the same sunflower image to make a Thank You card. The envelope for the card is even custom handmade due to the size of the card.  Check out the photos below.  And if you want to see each view larger just click on the photo.


Here are the original images created by the artist:
