Pretty Petunia

     For those of you feeling the chill of snow blanketing your yards and steps, how about a peek at a beautiful new release from MHK Designs that will bring on thoughts of spring?  The set is called "Pretty Petunias" and there's a photo of the full set at the end of this post.


     I colored with chalks this time and cut the image with one of my newer die sets from Spellbinders.  I added light pink "negative" scraps from another die cut (same set of dies) to add to the framing of the petunia.  The bow is a double loop made from lace and satin ribbon with a tiny pink button in the center.  The sentiment is part of the Pretty Petunias set.
