Spring Blooms

Good Morning!

Today's theme at Sweetsassydiva's is Spring Blooms.

I used Flower Shoppe for 2 of the flowers and one leaf. The rest were flowers from my stash. For those who follow my blog know, I'm working on using up what I have before I buy anything else. To make the flowers from Flower Shoppe, I used the first one on the cartridge, cut @ 3.

I start rolling it with my tool from Hobby Lobby. I like to roll my flowers tight, but that's personal preference.

I added a glue dot to the bottom and the flower is complete.

Complete, but boring. lol I added Strawberry ice stickles to the petals.

I added liquid pearls, petal ink to the center.

From Paper Trimmings I cut 2 floral borders, at 1.5 each. Adding stickles to one border and pearls to another. I also added some left over swirled gems around the flowers.

I cut 4 pictures into various sized circles for something different. The main picture is 4 X 4. The light pink mat is 4 1/8 X 5.75 and I used Perfect Plumeria ink around the edges. The hot pink mat is 4.25 X 6. I added 2 colored circles matted on white for my journaling.

Thanks for looking!
