Flourishes Progressive challenge
I haven't played for a long time at the Flourishes Blog. I love their stamps because of the variety of beautiful flowers they produce. This week they have a really interesting challenge, a Progressive one - what a great idea! It starts with a sketch, then adds 3 more steps: make it monochromatic, use some decorative paper, and add bling! You can make 4 separate cards, or just 1, using all of the steps. I chose to do the latter, using one of my favorite flowers from a set called Botanical Bookplates, volume 2. The sentiment is also from the same set, and since its subject is hope, I went pink, thinking this would make a lovely card to send to a breast cancer patient.
