Farewell Botanical Blooms

This weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge straight away reminded me of the gorgeous edge framelit in the Botanical Buidlers set

I just had to create a special card one more time with this set before it retires and is gone for ever.  Combined with the matching Botanical Blooms stamp set and you can create a stunning 3D bouquet on your card

I used an aqua painter to add veins to the flowers and sponged with a dauber to deepen the middle of the flowers, a small metalic shapes is added to the centre to finish each of the flowers off, and well...., who can resist a little bling! The sentiment is from Oh So Succulent set, its is such a cute font!

My colour combination also incorporates Mint Macaron (one of my favourites), sadly this colour will also be departing soon :(

I also stamped the inside of the card, I adore these little flowers!
