Now on to what I created…










I used almost all of the IAR mulberry flowers for the exception of the cherry blossom and even thou they are all so different they all coordinate perfectly with each other. I was excited to use the new sprays (SP2-151), the mama 3" pink rose (F50-3), R-21's, R-40's, R-60's & R-77's just to name a few. I am very happy with my project it was super simple to create and so much fun so take out all your IAR flowers and start creating something amazing with them too :)

Next up is :
