It was time to come up with another swap for my downline meeting this Saturday.  Our theme is Occasions or Sale-A-Bration catalog products.  I decided to mix a little of both!  I've been dying to use the fabulous new Botanical Builder Framelits again, so I went with those in some tropical colors.  I was inspired by my fellow demo Sarah Williams who will be missing our meeting to go on a Caribbean cruise - lucky lady!!!

I just love this new coordinating Botanical Gardens suite from the Occasions Catalog!  The individual prices are listed in the card recipe, but be sure to check out the bundle which saves you 15% and includes the Botanical Blooms stamp set, the Botanical Framelits and the Botanical Gardens DSP!  See a video on the bundle at the end of this post.

The *hello* sentiment is from the Hello stamp set, one of the sets from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog available for FREE with a $50 purchase.  This is one of the Limited Time products that will only be available through Feb. 15 - don't miss out on it!  I stamped that on one of the Lots of Labels Framelits.  Then I used a marker to color just the *sunshine* from one of the other stamps from the set and stamped it below the hello.

To achieve the coloring on the flowers, I used sponge daubers to layer on Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, and Melon Mambo.  For the very center of the flowers, I used an Aqua Painter with a mixture of Real Red and Chocolate Chip.  I also drew in some lines with Stampin' Write Markers, although in retrospect, I should have taken more time to draw them carefully.  With 12 to make, I was rushing through them.

Once everything was dry, I curled all the flower pieces with a bone folder and put them together with Mini Glue Dots.  Already can't wait to use these framelits again!!  Enjoy!
