Blossoms

Going through my paper stash, I was inpsired by this beautiful stripe by Frances Meyer called Maison de Campagne. For this first card, I pulled the 3 main colors from it and used other printed papers to paper-piece the small blossom from this cling set by Hero Arts.
Supplies: CG148 Blossoms, CL371 Essential Messages, white cardstock, various printed papers, Versafine onyx black

And for this one, I chose the widest stripe and used the larger of the blossoms. I also distressed the edges of the flowers and leaves to make them stand out a bit more, raised the orange centers with pop dots, and added a black gem to the centers.
Supplies: CG148 Blossoms, AR137 Script Messages, white cardstock, various printed papers, Versafine onyx black, Mustard Seed, Faded Jeans, and Peeled Paint distress inks, black gems
