Flower bottles

Good morning!  This morning I woke up to a cloudy and rainy day - although the good thing about these types of days is that you can't do anything outside, so you might as well get crafty, right?
So after my cup of java, 2 loads of laundry, baked a banana bread for our bake sale at church tomorrow, I worked on finishing this card that I started on Thursday.

You know how much I love flowers, and with lots of spring birthdays, and Mother's Day not so far off I thought I would work on some of those types of cards.

I'm using an older Stamping Bella image called Flower Bottles.

As usual, I stamped the image on bella's bestest paper, coloured with Copics and the shading done with pencils. I used a couple of different spellbinder dies.  Papers are from Basic Grey - Plumeria - so in love with this pack - lots of soft mauves and purples - I'm in heaven! For the pink flower, I cut out an extra one, coloured it up and then used a pop dot to give it some dimension.

Didn't think I needed to add much more to this since the paper behind was quite busy, so finished with some glitter, glossy accents on the centers of the flowers and then added a few small pearls.

I now need to clean up my work space so I can get creative again.  Thanks for stopping by, hope the sun is shining where you are. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fabulous! Love, love, LOVE those flower bottles! Your pearls sprinkled throughout are a very creative touch, and I love the two dies layered together. Great papers and coloring. I repeat, fabulous!
