Flourishes September New Release - Day 3

Hello everyone - welcome to Day 3 of the Flourishes September Blog Hop!  I am excited to be sharing another beautiful set with you - it is called Winter Blooms illustrated by Beverly Cole.  

This set is beautiful (as they all are) and is so versatile.  A lot of homes here in Australia have these beautiful Christmas Cactus in the gardens.    We are also welcoming a new design Team member - Tricia  Traxier

I have stamped the Christmas Cactus onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured them using watercolour markers.  it has been cut out and popped up using  3D Foam Squares onto a Die-cut,  The background layer has been precut in gold.  I have added bling to make it more decorative but this image would work on any style card and for any occasion - you have to love that! The possibilities are endless! 

Be sure to visit the other designers' pages today,  your next stop is Naomi's Blog then go shopping at Flourishes.   Don't forget to welcome our new Designer Tricia  Traxler when you stop by her Blog.

  4. Christmas Cacti in the garden? Haven't seen THAT in Florida. Thank-you for this beautiful inspiration piece.

  5. Lovely...it would be great to win

  6. Fabulous card, wonderful colouring. Love the zygo cactus - survives the Queensland humidity but also my indifferent regard to its needs for water and fertiliser.

  8. Very elegant with all the gold.
