More Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms - Do you love them too?

 Stampin' Up! UK Botanical Blooms was a big hit for me you've probably guessed and I used it for both the Mother's Day cards I made.  This one was for my MIL and featured a new technique to me shared the lovely Adeline, a member of my dutch team.  It uses ink and the large polka dot embossing folder for the matting layer and of course the leaves and flowers are from the Botanical Builder Framelits.  If you missed the card I made for my mum with the same dies you can see it here in my Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms for Mother's Day post.
I love that you get lots of leaves and not just flowers in this set of dies and all you need to do is search pinterest and google to find lots of examples for inspiration and colour combinations.

Yesterday I visited my Dad and although physically well.  The anaesthetic and post op drugs are playing games with his mental health.  He needs drips etc to add the vital fluids his body needs, but he is wanting to pull them out and so the medicines to sedate him along with the slow exit of the operation anaesthetic are confusing him.  At least that is what we hope.  It is so hard to see him so vulnerable and frail.

Thank you for all your good wishes and messages. They really are appreciated.

Have a great week.

This flower arrangement looks fantastic. Love that you kept it white with just a little green detailing. White can be a great color of contrast for a colorful background, as you've demonstrated here.
