I think this set may be my favorite from the release this month. I really enjoyed coloring up the flowers and they make such pretty cards. Here is one card I made and it was fun because I added dimension to it as well. Hope you like it...

DSC00363 copy 

I colored the image with copics 3 times (I did not color the whole image for each just what would show in the layer)and cut them out and layered with foam tape. I used RV00, RV55, and RV66 to color the flower. The center of the flower was accented with stickles and the frame was done with a Martha Stewart punch around the page duo. 

Here is a close up showing the dimension:
