A Vase of Flowers

Happy Saturday Bloggers,

This is my second post today - so I'll make it quick!

It's a "Lucky Dip" over at the Less is More Challenge this week, and we have a picture inspiration ...

Here is my interpretation (although I'm not all that happy with it - it's not really me! and I'm not sure how strictly you have to follow the inspirational pic - I may be disqualified for using black!?)  ...


I coloured some card with a Baby Pink Promarker, then stamped a Hero Arts flower in Versafine Olympia Green.  Vase is a Stampin Up Punch, leaves are a Stampin Up die.  I added a touch of Sakura sparkle to the leaves and flowers.

Thanks for visiting, hope you all have a lovely week.

Suze xx

This ornament punch vase is great fun Sue and your flowers are gorgeous. I really like your floral off the edge shelf as well and the trim you've added to it. Vicky x

I think the stamp I used is by Penny Black, one of their new releases.

Love your card too, nice use of the punch and the flowers look heavenly
