Forever Florals Mambo

I'm still enjoying the Forever Florals set.

There are so many pretty flowers in this set
and they are perfect for coloring 
with the Blendabilities.

I used the Melon Mambo set to color this flower.

Then I masked it and stamped
with leaves from the retired Peaceful Petals set.
The leaves were colored the the Medium and Light Old Olive Blendies.

has the code word
Having beautiful flowers to enjoy is a luxury.
And this flower would bring hummingbirds 
that are a delight to watch.

where we're celebrating their birthday
and need to  use a stamp (stamps) on a card.
These stamps are rubber.

This is gorgeous, Bonnie. Love the color of the flower and that needlepoint embossing folder is yummy. Too bad it is retired.
