More Blooming Buds


Here's another card from my play with the Blooming Buds.

The watercolor process was the same as for this card.

By mounting it on a dark card base, it has a totally different look.

I love the sentiments that are included with these flowers.

Most of you probably know that Heidi Swapp lost her second oldest son.
An unimaginable loss!  You can read about it on Jennifer Mcguire's post here.  

You can send Heidi a card at

Thank you for your visit.

Enjoy!

Simply lovely Bonnie, (and thanks for that address too.) It's so very striking with the darker colors in the background, which really play up your superb watercoloring. Off to look at the butterfly, as I just got that set delivered yesterday! Hope the day was just grand for you. TFS & Hugs
