Basket of blooms

I love flowers and I love baskets... especially together! And the little bird is like a cherry (blueberry?) on top.... The main image stamp belongs to Linda and I stamped a few last time I visited. The sentiment is from this year's SAB set called So Happy for You.

I wonder, which photo do you like better? I took this by mistake with the flash but I decided to see how it looks in the blog compared to the regular light I usually use. It's not as harsh as most of the flash photos I've (mistakenly) shot; maybe the soft blue color didn't bounce the light so much... Speaking of colors, I've used Pool Party with Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder. I also used Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand for the basket, blended a little with a blender pen.

I colored the image with my SU markers this time, using a couple of hints I've gotten from Linda and even though it's not as nice or as polished as the one I did with Copics, I still like the coloring a lot and I love having the new In Color markers.

I frayed the edges of the Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon and added buttons from PTI.

A linen thread French knot ties up this little flower.

I hope you're enjoying a basket of your own blooms!

  1. I love this card with the red accents. This sentiment fits it perfectly. I like the second photo best but really both are quite nice. The texture on the blue is a nice accent. Enjoy your day and your weekend. Can't wait to see what you post next.
