I made a potted floral bouquet using the flowers from the set Brighter Days, the leaves from Verve's Dream Big set, and the sentiment from the With Love set. For the flowers I used the new Scalloped Flower die and colored them with Copics. The Dreamy leaves die was used for the leaves. For the sentiment, I used a framing image and die that will be peeked tomorrow....shhhhhh...it just fit so perfectly in my little pot of flowers. ;)

The flowerpot is a Spellbinders diecut that I first dry embossed with a cuttlebug folder, then embossed it with white embossing powder to give it that enamel look.

You can hardly see it, but I used one more die along the bottom border that will be peeked in two days. I'm really breaking the rules today. yikes!!


That's it for today. Hope you're having fun hopping along!! Next up on the hop is the sweet and super creative Amber.
