Wise Men
                                               

My first card for Huge Blooms is actually a small card.  It measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2".  I used the larger of the two flowers on the card and the smaller flower on the envelope.


I used the flower images only for the background, creating my own DP for my second card today.  The main focus of this one is the sentiment.



Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the design team.  Remember, if you comment on their blogs, you may win one of this month's stamp sets.
