Verve May 2016 Release Spotlight Hop ~ Day 1

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I love flowers (and butterflies).   So it should not be a surprise that I chose to use this wonderful new flower from Beautiful Things and the coordinating Beautiful Flowers die set on my card.  I coloured them red and orange with Twinkling H2Os and paired them with the leaves from the die set along with a few black accents.  I adore this sentiment - such a great one to be able to add to a card to encourage someone - my favorite thing to do!
