Floral artistry

Ah, yes, for those gifted people who can create beautiful bouquets, whether in a floral shop or to bring inside some wonderful home-grown cuttings!  This image comes from The Paper Shelter and I've colored her with prisma pencils and gamsol, adding stickles to the flowers once complete.  The flourishes I've used here are from a diecut and the little ferns were done with a punch.  I added a strip of ribbon along the bottom and the remainder you can pretty well determine by looking.   Thanks so much for coming in to view my creation.

  14. This is a super duper card. The purple and white theme is right up my alley. I adore your corner arrangement with the die cut swirls and punch ferns. Those flowers are arranged so nicely with this image. The image is a cute one from TPS for sure, but your coloring makes it the spotlight. The paper and layout, the ribbon, the butterflies, the doilies...all of these pretty shiny embellishments, too, definitely make this card a winner! Hugs, Gail
