Forget-Me-Not



Card made for the Flourishes Floral Finesse Challenge. We are to use a favorite flower as the inspiration for our card or color scheme. This Hero Arts Sweet Fleur stamp has always looked to me like a Forget-me-not, so I ran with that idea, using blues and greens. It is stamped on glossy photo paper, then watercolored using markers. The sentiment is a Paper Inspirations stamp. I added little blue pearls along the punched lace edge, and gold gems in the centers of the flowers.
