Hi Everyone,
Hope you have been enjoying the sneak peeks this week from Taylored Expressions an today the DT and I are back to showcase two new stamp sets that feature the gorgeous Hydrangea flower! I created this card using the Hydrangea Bouquet stamp set designed by the amazing Nancy McKinney (which is a Petite set and comes with five sentiments and coordinates with the Mini Tags (Set of 9) dies from Taylored Expressions and is perfect for coloring and creating your very own Hydragea blooms in your house :) I wasn't too sure how to color a Hydrangea and I am no copic pro - so I just took a bunch of blues and violets and greens and colored it in without any rhyme or reason :) LOL! I had so much fun creating this card:

I paired it up with some stash papers from the MME collection (Howdy Doody Ms. Caroline) and added a ribbon and trimmed the corners. I also added a little glaze to the flowers and a little silver ink to the bucket over the gray/blue copics that I colored the bucket with. The sentiment was created by using part of one sentiment and the other part of another and together: "you are simply amazing" :) I love how it turned out and can't wait to color in more of these blooms!

I can't wait to see what the lovely ladies have created with this gorgeous stamp! Please check them out here: 
Thank you for stopping by today! Please stop by tomorrow for more release day peeks!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

This is gorgeous! Love how you created a little scene using the wood for the floor. The frame and the pearl accents is so pretty, and I love the colors you chose for the flowers!
