Make It Monday #297 - Mixing Florals

Hello friends.  Color me happy!!  Dawn McVey is up with this weeks Make It Monday challenge and wants us to try mixing our floral stamp sets together!  Right up my alley as I LOVE flowers and mixing the stamp sets together was so much FUN!!


I chose to work with Sunflower Harvest, Beautiful Berries: Autumn, Leave It Be, & Stylized Autumn.  I started with a piece of Ripe Avocado DSP on the bottom third of my card, and a small strip of Cocoa Bean above that, and then stamped my sentiment above that from Keep It Simple: Thinking Of You in Cocoa Bean ink.  After that it was just a matter of arranging my florals and leaves until I achieved the balance I wanted and then finished up with a few iridescent sequins.  Don't you just LOVE the colors of Autumn?!  Already starting to change here in West Michigan...now if we could just get the temperatures to go down a little!  (I don't think 90's and air conditioning is Fall weather!)



Check out Dawn's beautiful card and video right HERE and then play along.


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  2. What an amazing bouquet - your arrangement is exquisite! Yes, hot and humid does not say fall here in mid-Wisconsin either. At least we don't have to struggle with hurricanes.
