Botanicals Past & Present

May's Past & Present challenge was a bit difficult for me to complete.  Botanicals 2000, Simply Beautiful 2007 and Botanicals 2015  are this month's chosen kits. Of all three kits presented this month I only had two 12x12 sheets left of the newer Botanicals. I just happen to have some Wisteria Greetings to Go bases that needed love and the purple was a great match for these prints. I didn't want to cover up much of the Botanical design but wanted to add some artistry. The last two cards have splattered gelatos on the mats.

I'm already looking forward to June's Past & Present challenge!
I'm sure you can tell by now that I'm not a CS Hoarder.
Here are more previous creations from Botanicals

Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
