I used this book yesterday as a matter of fact. I needed to make a birthday card for a friend so I turned to the March section and the card I made is below.
It looks almost like watercolor, so beautiful and soft. I used direct to stamp technique for the flowers, stems and leaves. Memento markers were used in Grape Jelly, Lulu Lavender, Summer Sky and Bamboo Leaves. I used the Lacey Squares Spellbinders die. The card stock is the Lovely Lavender, Vibrant Violet and White from Gina K Designs. I used the greeting from the Gina K Petals and Wings kit. The lavender pearls are from Martha Stewart.
Here's a close up of the flower.
See what I mean? I never would've been able to create this on my own so please check out the book, A Year of Flowers and start making your own beautiful creations, All Year Long!
This is my matching 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 envelope....
I hope you liked my card. Have a great day and Thanks for Stopping By!
