Bloom with Hope for Fall

I'm busily preparing for a Christmas Stamp Stack
but I wanted to share this little flower.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored
with the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Blendabilities.

The Spellbinder ovals were a birthday present.
Aren't they pretty?
I love how one fits so perfectly into the other.

The sassy bow was going to go at the bottom of the flower
but a smudge changed my mind.
LOL, I hope you don't mind asymmetrical placement!

It seems like I do a lot more smudges lately!

has a CAS challenge this week.

This is the card I CASEd.

That's all for today.  I need to finish setting up.

Here's a peek at the Stamp Stack cards.

Such a pretty flower ... and those frames and embossing make it so elegant. Love the colors. Smudges seem to be happening to me a lot lately too ... are we in too much of a hurry or what??!! :) Anyways, great save and I like the bow off to one side --- it works! You have gorgeous cards for your class and everyone is sure to be pleased. Have fun! Loll xx
