Have a Blooming Good Day

evening all.
The year is whizzing by, September already, where has this year gone?
Anyway it's time for a brand new challenge over at HLS Anything Goes with Dies.
As always so long as you use dies it's a free for all!
Here is my inspiration card for you.

I had a few die cut flowers left over from a craft class project using MFT Stitched Flowers, so thought I would use them in my project, adding some punched ones to finish the bouquet. 
I started but cutting a circle in the center of a square of white card then embossing the outer with a freebie EF. The flowers were coloured using DIs in a mix of summery colours along with some die cut leaves.  A few jewels and pearls were added to the centers before arranging the blooms, leaves and some dried gypsophila around the aperture. On a slightly larger beige panel I stamped the freebie sentiment in Onyx Black Versamark and mounted the top panel over it with pads. 
If you need more reasons to join in why not pop over and check out the rest of the team here and then join in.
