(2021 c027) Spring Nosegay

Have you youngsters ever heard the term Nosegay? That is what this is… a small flower bouquet, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice.[1] Doilies are traditionally used to bind the stems in these arrangements. I used watercolor paper and colored flowers and butterfly with watercolors. Dies used: Hero Arts D1856 Bouquet Accessories Fancy Dies (E), Hero Arts D1857 Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies (E). The vellum holder as well as the sentiment was stamped with Hero Arts CM508 Sending Love Mail. The background was dry embossed with Park Lane 5×7 Vines embossing folder.
