This week's new releases are: Black Eyed Susans for Encouragement, Butterflies and Wisteria, Forest Gifts, Fun on the Farm .For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

My card to share with you, uses a beautiful image of the black-eyed Susans, which I colored with Copics.  I did some sponging on the die cut with the window.  I also added from CB'd Swiss Dots and ribbon for texture.
