TODAY'S PRIZE:
Hope Blooms, Proverbs 16:9 Plain Jane

and Floral Circles Die Set


For my card, I've combined the flower images from Hope Blooms with the Proverb 16:9 Plain Jane. I stamped the flowers onto white card stock and colored with Copics. To give them more dimension, I cut between some of the petals, curling some up and some down, then coated them with clear dimensional glaze. The sentiment has been stamped onto a Verve Classy Label die-cut. Papers are from the Salt Air collection by Cosmo Cricket.



So many possibilities with these flowers! I took the more fussy approach (shocking) and did all the coloring, cutting and glazing, but what's really cool is that the flowers also work with the Floral Circles dies we showed earlier in the week. You can see a great visual for that over at the Verve blog.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy today's hop!
