Flourishing Wishes

Dear Friends,

Today's the day the Backyard Blossoms Collection becomes available to everyone! Summer brings with it the excitement of a new gardening season, lounging in the open expanse of the backyard and enjoying the beauty of favorite perennial blossoms dancing gently in the warm summer breeze! Among those returning favorites are the attractive, butterfly loving coneflower! Bright and colorful, these pretty flowers come dressed in a wide variety of hues and quietly display their domed centers and soft delicate petals against the backdrops of ornamental grasses and other decorative backyard plantings!  Here's my inspiration

Next cut one Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die on white cardstock and one with pattern paper , then adhere oval pattern paper on white cardstock to give some strength and then paste it at the centre of the frame die with foam tape to give some dimension.

Now stamp two Blossoming Coneflower and one Garden Edge Coneflower with plum archival ink and cut them with matching die. For one set of Blossoming Coneflower color them with archival ink-Leaf green and for second stamp and die cut color it with archival ink- Sunflower and Cactus Flower and shape them with Deluxe flower tool kit and sprinkle crystal clear glitter and at the centre of the coneflower. Sprinkle some prills and Redland elements, and layer it on the first set. Next for the Garden Edge Coneflower stamp and die cut color them with archival ink leaf green, sunflower and cactus flower and shape them too and then at the centre of the flower sprinkle prills and Redland elements and sprinkle crystal clear glitter on the flower petals.
