Birth Flowers: October Marigold


Hi everyone! How silly of me... when I colored this image I thought the beautiful flowers were carnations and colored them this pretty Berry Sorbet by PaperTrey Ink. I realize now they are actually marigolds which come in red, orange and yellow, LOL!!!


The pretty image is the October Marigold digital stamp from Heart Song Designs. I paired the image with Hannah Small Striped and Hannah Pink Rose patterned paper from K&Company and embellished with Berry Sorbet Grosgrain Ribbon and matching buttons threaded with DMC White.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!


CREATIVE DESIGN:
  • Stamps: October Marigold (Heart Song Designs), Heart To Heart (Verve Stamps)
  • Paper: Old Olive, PTI White, Hannah Small Striped and Hannah Pink Rose Patterned Paper (K&Company)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics R21, R22, YG63, YG67
  • Other: Stitching, Paper Piercing, Round Tab Punch, PTI Berry Sorbet Buttons, PTI Berry Sorbet Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots and Mounting Tape
