Beautiful Flowers

Hi Y'all,
Flowers are bursting into bloom to compliment the many shades of green of the new growth on evergreens. Fitting that the theme this week for Created Byhand Challenge is flowers.

The decorative paper is Kanban Papers, Salerno, Beige Metallic Glaze. I cropped the two flowers using Spellbinders Labels Two #5. The third flower was trimmed closely. Cut a 1 1/2"x 5" strip of the background portion of the Salerno paper. Stamp the Rumi quote on a piece of the background and cut out using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen #4. Cut layers of light Bazzill Bling cardstock using Spellbinders Labels Two #5 and #6. Use a VersaMark Pen and Ranger's Super Fine Gold embossing powder to edge the quote, background strip and Bazzill layers. Assemble on darker green Bazzill Bling cardstock.

Enabler's List:
