I hope you’re enjoying your summer and that your surrounded by beautiful blooms. Maybe you’re experiencing a little rain like we are here in the Midwest? That’s ok.. that means it’s time to turn to your crafting and make some pretty florals of your own!

I’m smitten with the new Birch Press Design Large Cosmos bloom! I think it looks amazing in just about every color I’ve seen it in. I cut mine from four shades of red cardstock to add some dimension.

I added a few Curved Leaf Branches for a bit of foliage. I cut the branch three times from three shades of green cardstock and then alternated them so I wound up with three completed branches.

Some Mixed Berries in turquoise add another layer of interest to the design, and a hot foil Thank You Noted Script Sentiment is the finishing touch!

I used the “C” layer of the Flora set for a lacy looking background that is subtle and detailed at the same time. I love that it doesn’t distract from the beautiful floral! I hope you have a great day!
