Spring Bouquet

Art Glitter - White
Cuttlebug - Kassie's Brocade embossing folder
Heartfelt Creations - Small Camelia Carnation
Memory Box - Peace Doves
Spellbinders - Floral Ovals
Sakura 3d lacquer
Sizzix Susan's Gardens - Tool shaping kit

Well it's the weekend, raining and chilly.  Gave me time to work on cards instead of doing yardwork.
I went completely crazy with glitter on this design.  After embossing the purple paper I started shaping the flowers using the Sizzix Susan's Gardens tool kit.  I don't use it much but after watching some videos I always get in the mood to give it a try again.  After the flowers were shaped I used little dabs of the Sakura 3D lacquer and sprinkled on glitter.  I coated the birds with yellow glitter and decided to add the yellow Floral Oval for a little contrast.

Thank you for all your comments on my previous design I love reading them.

wild trilliums
A couple of years ago I noticed that Trilliums come up each Spring all around the yard.  So I now dig them up and have them all growing in the same area.  They tend to like shade and lots of moisture.

    These are lovely little plants, and hardy to come up every year considering the weather you've had, Kate x
