IB133 Beautiful Blooms

Hello and Happy Thursday, peeps!  Time for a new inspiration from Inspired By!  Here we go:


Aren't they gorgeous!? And here's the sketch...you can use one or the other, or both!  Your choice!


Peonies seem to be very popular right now....of course, I chose a different flower!  I liked the layering effect of this W+9 set called Freehand Florals, so I gathered up some inks and went to work.  And I managed to use the sketch even though I wasn't trying!!


These images are a little tricky to line up, but the name of the set is "Freehand", so I just went with it...I used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose for the pinks, and So Saffron and Bumblebee for the yellow; the greenery is Soft Seafoam and Pear Pizzazz:


I layered them on top of some rose-colored metallic thread into a pleasing arrangement....and I am always lamenting about the lack of stencils from SU, but I remembered I had hung on to an old kit called Build a Banner, and it had large stencils, so I put the polka-dotted one to work, stenciling a partial area on the background with some Blushing Bride ink and a stencil brush.  I LOVE that effect!  I added a sentiment at the bottom:


And as an afterthought, I added some Polka Dot Tulle ribbon for a little more frou-frou!


I love this girly card...such pretty colors and flowers!  I just know you'll come up with equally-beautiful
creations with your pretty colors and flowers as well!  Share them with us at Inspired By...can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy is on vacation this week, so I haven't seen her all week.  But here are a few florals from my road, captured on my early-morning walks:

Just some lowly clover and Queen Anne's lace:


But I managed a capture an extra little guest on this one:


Enjoy your day and be blessed!!

What a wonderful, lovely bouquet of flowers, and I just love that little touch of metallic thread behind them! Beautiful photos of mother nature, and that lavender flower is gorgeous! Great timing with the bee's visit too!
