Stylized flowers

I have no idea what kind of flowers these are suppose to be in this die set, but I thought they were very interesting and different from what I have seen before, and I found them at Hobby Lobby so I was able to use my 40% off coupon so who can pass that up :)  as you can see, not this girl !!



I did a bit of shaping of the white and red flowers, inked the center of them and than masked that part off as I added the red to the petals, the inking of the yellow flowers was done as the paper was still in the die and I colored the berries and stems and just added a some white highlighting to it, and added some fun paper for the background, cut with the stitched die

Spellbinders -- Stylized Flowers die set and A2 matting basics die
Memory Box -- Stitched Rectangles layers die
Martha Stewart -- tag punch
Stamps of life -- minis 4 circles sentiment stamp set
Colorbok-- Homespun paper
Studio G -- gems

Back is still hurting, but getting better. Having my craft night with the ladies tonight so I have warned them all in advance I haven't done any mopping or heavy duty cleaning so they will just have to look the other way, LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, love hearing from you, hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

What a pretty floral card! I love getting things on sale - in fact I very rarely buy a full priced item!
Hope your back feels better soon - Sounds like you had a fun night planned, crafting with your friends!

Whatever the name of these botanical delights, Connie, they are so pretty. Such a lovely Spring-filled card. I do hope your back is better soon and you are up and 'dancing' with that mop soon. =)

I really like these unusual flower shapes! I like the sponging on the die cuts and the great layering over the patterned paper.

How pretty. You did a nice job "colouring" in the flowers and shaping them. Lucky you to score with a 40% off coupon.
