Seventh Day of Flowers

Fresh flowers are just wonderful to receive! If only they lasted longer! Here's a way to to keep that bouquet blooming for some time!
This beautiful floral image is from Northwoods Stamps. I received this stamp as a gift from my good friend Kathie. She knows just what I like! Thanks so much Kathie!
I began by stamping off the image onto PaperTrey Ink's white cardstock and colored it with Copic and Spica markers. I used Crystal Effects to create the "glass" vase.
The base cardstock is Stampin' Up's Buckaroo Blue (retired) topped with K and Company dp. I ran a Buckaroo panel through my Cuttlebug using a Swiss Dot folder. I added a Walmart grosgrain ribbon to complete the design.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
