Botanical Blooms

Hello......... I have another card to share using the Botanical collection from the new Stampin Up seasonal catalogue.

I started of with a base of Cajun Craze card stock and added a piece of Botanical blooms DSP 
I used Hello Honey Card to die cut my flowers and added some real red with a sponge and added a few line with my blender pen and dipped in the red ink.
I used a snippet of DSP to create one banner and a snippet of mint macaroon for the other adding a sentiment from Crazy about you.  The black line is a slither of DSP.
I die cut my leaf in Mossy Meadow and just glued the bottom onto my base. I glued one flower onto my card and propped the second one with some dimensionals.

I have followed the current sketch over at 



  1. Such a lovely card! Isn't this the most delightful bundle of goodies, and I love the depth you've got in the flowers with sponging on the red.

  2. Fabulous cheerful colours - lovely to see as it is grey and pouring with rain here in Vancouver.

  3. Your flowers are so pretty with the sponged centers, and I especially love the drawn lines! Such a cheery card! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  4. Wow...gorgeous flowers! Love the subtle textured background, too! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this time on Create with Connie and Mary!

  5. STUNNING!!! ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! I love how you added the color to the centers of the flowers but that pop of Mint Macaron in your banner is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  6. Oh wow, Gail! The sponging on those flowers make them so beautiful! The yellow flowers look so nice against the yellow linen looking background! Thanks for playing with us at Create with Connie and Mary!

  7. Gorgeous Gail - I love the colouring on the flowers! Your card is a worthy Top 3 CCMC pick this week!
