Double D - Flowers in Containers

 Dear Ones`

Here we are past the middle of January already. How do you like 2021 so far? 😏 At least Himself and I have received our first dose of the Covid Vaccine, and we are scheduled for the second dose on February 1st. I am so grateful for that.

Today's offering is for the next Double D Challenge, and that is FLOWERS IN CONTAINERS. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration.

And here is my card:

I really enjoyed coloring this image from Stampin' Up with my Karin Markers. They are so lovely and easy to use. Highly recommend. I broke out a couple of old die sets by Spellbinders for this. I haven't used them in forever. They are the Vleur de Lis Squares and the Marvelous Squares. Back in the day, when they first came out, they were all the rage because of their intricacy. Remember? Dies today are so much more intricate. The industry has come a long way.

The Ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card
Recollections Cream Card
Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Die
Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Die
Spellbinders Fancy Labels 1 Die
SU Ornate Floral EF
SU Jar of Flowers Stamp Set
SU Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp for Greeting
Karin Brush Marker Pro Markers
Trinity Stamps Bubble Blowout Baubles
