I wanted to pull out this beautiful Fuschia set from Flourishes called Fuschias in Bloom it is such a lovely set illustrated by Lauren Pope.  I just love the fuschia border included in the set.  

Coloring is done with Copics and I've used some Spellbinders to accent Labels Twenty, Edgeabilities,  Ornate Artisan Dies, and the Butterfly dies.  


Love this textured Two-Tone Fuschia ribbon too, and I've paired it here with some pretty white lace Laural Venise.  

Join the rest of the girls to continue on in the Birthday Celebration Hop!
