Embrace the blooms

Ta-da !
Look at this people...   flowers!
You know I am florally challenged,
so this year's aim is to embrace those blooms.
Ha-ha!  I'm feeling pretty damn good about my first attempt ;-)

 For a little help and inspiration I turned to this week's Seize the Sketch
and used my new flower stamps and dies.
To add a bit of interest, one bloom is popped up on foam pads.
The colours are a bit wishy washy on my photos,
irl they are bolder, especially the green stems.

Hero Arts/Sizzix - Floral.      Memento Ink - Dandelion, Rose Bud and New Sprout.
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studios.    Gems and Sequins 



Wow - the gorgeous flowers really "pop" from the dark background - you definitely embraced the blooms with this fabulous card! Love the little sequins - they look rather like falling raindrops - totally beautiful.
Happy New Year - Sylvia xx
