Always Flowers...



Flourishes is turning 6 and I wanted to join in the birthday fun. The first challenge is Black and White.  I love how elegant that instantly makes anything :)  I wanted to ink up a couple of new sets, Picking Wildflowers and the sentiment from Garden Gate. I adore that sentiment. It's true there is always beauty if you are looking. I stamped the image onto my cardstock and then ran it through a new embossing folder that's a big frame from The Paper Studio. I did add some shading to the flowers because it really made them pop more and I added a super light green to the stems. This card escaped the sequin obsession as the sparkly brad that just seemed perfect lent itself more to rhinestones :)  Thanks so much for stopping by!
