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.

  2. Love this card, Lin! And that sentiment is one of my favorites! You'll often see it on signs down in the Texas Hill Country as the spring wild flowers are starting to bloom...
