Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful/ The Beauty of a Flower

Hello!  I am playing catch up here.  The Bring Back Beautiful challenge for the month of May is:

The Beauty of a Flower! They say April showers bring May flowers, so let’s show off those beautiful blossoms! This month’s Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge is to be inspired by those gorgeous botanicals every stamper loves! Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creation HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB10. You have until May 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!



I used the beautiful new set from Flourishes called Orchids.  I love these pretties and googled an image of the different kinds of Orchids and found one that was a stunning shade of purple with a little red in the middle.  I used the Crate Paper Portrait collection in shades of black to keep the focus on the flowers.


I used this beautiful quote from the set on the inside.  I don't usually do much with the inside of my cards until I am ready to give it to someone.  After this last week, I thought this was a very fitting quote...don't you?




Here is the new set from Flourishes called Orchids


I used the fabulous sketch at Taylored Expressions.


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
