Golden Flowers ...

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. (Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!) ~Edward Abbey, "Cliffrose and Bayonets," Desert Solitaire, 1968

I'm a bit late getting this posted but today a new Sunday Song & Rhyme Challenge has started at The Outlawz Challenges and will run through February 19th

Our sponsor this challenge is: Beccy's Place with a prize of a $10.00AU gift voucher
Facebook Group:

Our Song/Rhyme this month was selected by the newest member of our team, Nan

In tangled wreaths, in clustered gleaming stars,
In floating, curling sprays,
The golden flower comes shining through the woods
These February days;
Forth go all hearts, all hands, from out the town,
To bring her gaily in,
This wild, sweet Princess of far Florida -
The yellow jessamine.
Constance Fenimore Woolson

Since I took my inspirations from the lines
“In floating, curling sprays,
The golden flower comes shining through the woods
These February days”

I chose to use the beautiful image “Lady in Waiting, Sprig 1, coloring it with ProMarkers then fussy cutting out. Simply gorgeous!

A little tip for you … I wanted to raise it a bit off the background but my foam was thicker than I wanted. An old trick I use is to cut bits of white card stock into snippets, glue 3pcs together then added to a few places on back of the image where I want to give it just a little depth. Then the rest is simply glued to the background. Always love the effect it gives. But it is hard to photograph!

  1. Image “Lady in Waiting, sprig 1” printed on Hammermill Color copy
  2. Cardstock from The Paper Studio (Base) and Bazzill
  3. Design Paper from my scrap
  4. Embossing folder (Layered Leaves) from Stampin Up!
  5. Momento Ink
  6. Pearls from Stampin Up!
  7. ProMarkers
  8. Sentiment from Unity Stamps
  9. Sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challege 286
