Thank you… now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle of Creations with Michelle.
If you came from Caroline of Caroline's Creations you are in the right place!
Here is a Succulent & Floral wreath I created in January ~ as part of a promo held then ~ recreating this with current product & the newest Cricut cartridge is something I will be doing at a later date ~

For the roses I use White Card stock stamped all over in smoothie ink using a word stamp... then inked the edges in the same color using a Sponge dauber...

So in the meantime...
I had a lot of fun creating this card using FLOWERS ~ as I did not have any succulents with me while staying at my Dad's
(he had Open Heart Surgery and a bypass... and is doing FANTASTIC!)

Using the stamp set Hello Lovely (C1670) that also comes as a Thin cut bundle (Z3301) for those that do not enjoy fussy cutting...
I stamped the flower cluster in Bamboo ink (Z2803) & coloring with watercolor Pencils (3505) & using a blender pen to blend the colors.
Colonial white cards & envelope Value Pack (X1410).
Several papers from a couple different collections were used...
Rustic Home Fundamentals (Z3262)
Enchantment Fundamentals (Z3254)
Dreamin' Big Paper Packet (x7218B)
Shimmer Brush in GOLD (Z3316)
Bling is Sugar Rush Dots (Z3310)
