Sweet 'n Sassy Release Celebration - Flower Blocks 3

Welcome to the March Sweet 'n Sassy release celebration!  Let's get this party started with a brand new floral set, Flower Blocks 3.  This great set features four big, beautiful blooms and four script sentiments.  Perfection!

I stamped and embossed the rose image on cardstock and then used watercolors to color the image.  Next I used a few texture folders to emboss two paper pennants, mounted the flower image and embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum.  Easy Peasy!

Easy Peasy looks striking on your gorgeous rose, Kim! Your watercoloring is amazing, and the flower just pops against the black matting! Hugs!

This is absolutely amazing, Kim! I love black cardbases (don't do them enough) and keep hoping that they come back in style! Clearly, as can be seen in your card, everything just jumps off of black card. Your watercoloring is gorgeous as well.

Those colors are gorgeous against the basic black. It looks almost like roses in my mother-in-laws garden - and that's a real compliment.
