First, and Second Helpings

Happy to have enough of those gorgeous blooms I created during Bobby's visit to make more than one card ... think it's okay to serve up Second Helpings to The Flower Challenge's CAS #14?  We'll see!


Roses, and Hellebores... aren't they the perfect pair? These are from Wplus9, and Dawn has a wonderfully helpful video sharing her way of using the MISTI with layering stamps... you'll find it here.  This is the second card I created with them:

CAS is often described as having "lots of white space" but I think this soft grey is a beautiful stand-in!

Speaking of WHITE ... here is another little goodie that Bobby brought along... this darling little Christmas Tree die from Concord & 9th ... fa la la fabulous!  and on its way to Inspired By all the Little Things #72... Laura Jane's white Christmas tree was my inspiration!

 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by ... always makes me...

A duo of stunning, my friend! I think Santa needs to put these sets into your stocking so you have them on hand all the time! After all, you are on his 'nice' list! Truly gorgeous, both!

WOW!! Michele, your flower Christmas card is just gorgeous, love, love the beautiful pop of color of this flowers on your soft card base.
The sentiment is so beautifully placed, stamping it in that soft gray makes a statement but doesn't take anything away from your lovely spray of blooms.
Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play with us again next time.
Hugs,

Michelle, I love your little Christmas Tree too, such a sweet image all decked up!!!
The sentiment on your first card is just amazing, I forgot to ask you if you could please tell me where you got it, looks like it comes with a die so that is double fabulous.
Thank you in advance.
Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.
