I finally used my Botanical Garden set, and I also wanted to do something with copper. I think Blush Blossum is under appreciated, and I've seen it used on so many pretty cards. My intention was to combine it with Really Rust, but somehow Rose Red butted in a took over. :) The dragonfly brad was gold, so I heated him up and dunked him in the copper EP.

Oh, my goodness gracious, Linda!! Would you look at this! We have to talk! Beautiful, subtle Floral background; exquisite embossed and watercolored image; glorious colors. I was just saying to someone the other day that Blush Blossom is under used and under appreciated. To combine it with Rose Red was a stroke of creative genius! Also, the layout, the tabs, embellishments--wow!

Linda, what a gorgeous, gorgeous card. Your B. Blossum and R. Red are absolutely stunning together. I must try. The gallery must have been down when you uploaded this card. It deserves many, many more comments. I am going to email to my SCS friends. Into my fav's. Nancy

Ohhhh! Linda, this turned out so pretty. I had not even though of that set but you have put it on my list. The colors are just perfect. I never would have thought of putting Not Quite Navy with this but it just makes it gorgeous! What is the background stamp? The botanicals?
