Potted Primroses

Hello Everyone!  Get ready to smile because today the Bloom Brigade have lots of cheery goodness from Power Poppy in the form of primroses!!  These bright, happy flowers come in a variety of colours and native to western and southern Europe, parts of northern Africa and also south west Asia.  Primroses are often named as the February Flower (along with the Violet)!  Apparently, if you give someone a primrose it lets that 'someone' know you can't live without them!  For our February Release, let me introduce you to......Potted Primroses!



I've used a base of Daffodil Delight and layered with white and Violet Crush DP.  Across this is another piece of white punched with a scallop border punch and topped with more Violet Crush.  Around these layers I've attached a piece of white ribbon.  I've stamped the flowers and sentiment from Potted Primroses in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E30, E31, E35, 39, G12, G24, G28, Y11, Y15, Y17, E93, E95, E97, E17, E21, RV21, RV23, RV63, RV66, C5, W0, 0).  I've cut this out with Spellbinders' Labels 40 and matted it with Daffodil Delight cut with Labels 40 Decorative Elements.  I've popped this up on X-press It Foam Tape and finished with a bow and swirl clip tied with yellow gingham ribbon.
