Botanical Bookplates Volume One...and dies!


Something GORGEOUS again today from Flourishes!  A lovely set that combines two different images of two sets of flowers one larger and one smaller that fits in one of our NEW Custom Dies!  


On this card I've used the larger image of snowdrops as the main image.  Come back at noon for the Noon-Time Challenge and I'll show you something that uses both the larger image and the smaller bookplate image and dies.  They work so well together!  Here's a look at the die:



I did some soft subtle coloring to give these little snowdrops some white sparkle. 


I tried to capture some of the sparkle that I added onto the snowdrops with a Stardust pen.  Plus the sparkle in the corner gems, and the little touch of some embroidery floss to keep it delicate feeling.
