Flower Soft March Blog Hop and Candy!

Welcome to the Flower Soft Blog Hop for March! If you have arrived here from Rose Ann Reynolds blog, you're right where you should be! If you're just passing through, please start at the beginning of the hop at the Flower Soft Blog.


I'm very happy to announce that you can win Flower Soft blog candy by leaving a comment here on my blog! The fortunate person who leaves a comment here, and is also a follower of the Flower Soft blog, will win the Pastel Color Selection Box! The winner will be selected April 7th.


Our challenge for today's hop is to create a border with Flower Soft! If you have visited my blog previously, you know that I love using Flower Soft for bordering layers and images! Here are a couple of past examples of Flower soft and Ultra Fine Flower Soft borders:

Regular Nut Brown Flower Soft



Now, back to my new creation! I began with K & Company's Que Sera Sera "Fireworks" decorator paper. I layered the top printed panel onto black cardstock which was edged with Ultra Fine Black Flower Soft to create a textural border.


The blossom is made with Spellbinder's Peony Nestabilites and has a Ultra Flower Soft center...a large brad covered with the Black Ultra Fine FS! A bit of sponging with Versafine Black Onyx ink, black twill tape (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) and a PaperTrey Ink "Birthday" sentiment finish this design.


The Flower Soft Design Team:
Deb Saaranen (you're here!)

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! I hope that you enjoyed the projects and inspiration featuring Flower Soft!
