In Full Bloom

Could not get a decent scan on this, to show how pretty it actually is. 
In Full Bloom was one of the first Stampin Up sets I bought.  I've had so much fun with it.  This was made using Wausau Ivory c/s for the base and SU Pretty Pink for the frame.  The soft, pretty stripes background was from my extensive computer DSP collection (Filed under Stripes, Flwr 2 - note to self).  The leaves were stamped onto a 2 3/4" square of ivory and colored using Copic G21 & YG61.  That was affixed to the pink piece.  The flower head was stamped onto white and colored using layers of Zig Baby PinkMarker (another first purchase - years ago and it still works).  The petals were touched lightly with  Stickles Stardust glitter and it has Gold Liquid Pearl centers.  It was fussy cut and then attached Flat to the stem, with a dimensional toward the top so part of it stands up off the page.  I like that type of effect. The adorable bee was colored with Daffodil Delight and Black, fussy cut and had his wings glitzed.  Attached a framed sentiment and you're done.

It's gorgeous! I love the colors and the 3D effect and especially the flower center :)
