Freesias for you

I'm fairly sure these pretty flowers - a stamp by La Blanche called simply "Spray Flower" - are freesias. Not quite sure...anyone have any other guesses?


I stamped them on a rounded rectangle diecut (Wplus9), and colored the image with Copic markers. And then, oh so carefully, I added a pale yellow background with the help from a Copic, and then Antique Linen distress ink was sponged around the edges while the die was still in place.

I set the panel over top of a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three die cut, and topped it with a Tiny Tag die cut (Papertrey Ink). A little vintage thread bow was threaded through the hole at the top.



I've added some pearls, and a tied on a Colleen Bow using Hug Snug seam binding in Danish Blue.

By the way, I hang all of my Hug Snug seam binding rolls (plus a few smaller American Crafts ribbon rolls) on one of these pant hangers from The Container Store:


This hanger happens to be on sale right now, too!

So gorgeous! It looks like freesia, I think. Those La Blanche stamps are beautifully illustrated and lovely to color. They have a few at our local shop, but better selection online. Love that tiny tag. So cute! Nice colors. Soft and subtle and so very easy on the eyes. I have ribbon over-filling several drawers and I hardly use it anymore, tsk tsk.

Whatever the flowers are they're very pretty, as is its matching card.

This is such a pretty and romantic card Colleen! Love those sweet blue flowers. I don't think it's freesia. At least not the kind I used to get into my flower shop!!
