Double D Challenge - Flowers of the month Jan - June

For this challenge at Double D this next two weeks, we have flowers of the month.  Diane is our hostess and you have the first six months of the year to pick from. Diane has given you some ideas.   As usual, I went to a favorite flower of mine that you do not see here.  But it does bloom in June.  I checked.  You may be surprised. 


Here is the card that I did. 

I did a slimline card too.  This is the beautiful stamp and die from Gina K. Colossal Cone Flower
 and I could not resist using it. 
That background is an embossing folder from Pink and Main called Plaid. The coneflower was 
water-colored and then die cut. I used the crossed stitched circle die for the sentiment and
 off set it for more interest. 




There is a prize for the random winner of this challenge. Doesn't it look like a coneflower? 

                                                 

Check out the rest of the team Here. 


Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!

  3. This is gorgeous Barbara. Your water colored coneflowers is amazing and perfect! The lattice background gives them a nice garden backdrop. Coneflowers are among my favorites in my gardens.

  5. This is beautiful Barb! I too love cone flowers and have many planted around my house. Mainly purples (imagine that) but a few white as well. Your slimline design is just fabulous and showcases your beautifully colored coneflowers perfectly! Well done my friend! HUGS
