Welcome to day three of the hop!  Today's featured set is "Huge Blooms" and I have two cards to share using this fabulous flower.  For the first one I used the Large bloom.  I heat embossed the bloom with white EP then water colored with TH distress markers. 


For my second card I used the pink spritzed panel that has been sitting on my desk since DTGD and I stamped the bloom, then I colored it in with colored pencils and OMS, finishing it off with white gel pen highlights.

 I played along with the MIX36 Challenge at SCS (anything goes) where Dina Kowel shared a gorgeous card using white marker on her flower.  I am also playing along with HYCCT1303 Pink Pinterest Photos. I chose to use the PINK frames as my inspiration and framed my blossom with a Pink Spellbinders Fler De Lis Rectangle.

I hope you will hop on down the designer list to see all the gorgeous creations my teammates have come up with and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win today's release!
