Hi, Diane with you today!!
I am so excited as I received the new and beautiful
Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose stamp set
and Botanical Wings die Set 
and I couldn't wait to start creating with it!.

There are so many different flowers you can create with these sets.
Just think of all the pretty colors, is endless!!

I stamped my flowers with Versafine vintage sepia ink.
Using the Botanical Wings die set, I cut them out.
The die fits perfectly over the stamped flowers for cutting,
I love that feature!!

I then chose Versa Magic Dew Drop chalk inks to color
my flowers using Key Lime on the inner part of the flower
and Persimmon on the outer petals, blending as I applied.

and Paper Blossom Tool Kit,, I began forming my flowers.
I added Cloud Nine Velvet (microfine)glitter to the tips of the petals
then stacked the flowers, adhering them with Art Institute Clear Adhesive.

The background paper is from Joy Crafts Romance 6 x 6 collection.
to that I lightly adhered Leafy Sprig Border by PoppyStamps,
then adhering the flowers to that.

I could of easily added much more to this card, 
but I decided to let the flowers and the gorgeous paper "speak for themselves"!!

You will be seeing me using more of this beautiful flower die and stamp set
in the weeks to come...I am quite loving it...a lot!!

I am entering my card in the
Power Poppy Spark challenge.
You are to "look to the sky"
for inspiration.
The other morning after a night of snowfall, 
it was cold and crisp, and the orange sky was just peeping
out over the tops of the snow covered trees.
it was gorgeous, I didn't get a picture of it, 
as it was just too dang cold to step outside that early!
