Simply Succulents

Today my card features the Simply Succulent Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.  This was one of the first bundles that caught my eye in the catalogue.  Succulents are definitely the trend these days and I love them!  I used the new (and fabulous) Blending Brushes to colour the large image.  It made it so easy to add Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss to the leaves.  I went back in with some Stampin' Blends to add colour to the tips of the leaves. You are definitely going to want to add the Blending Brushes to your Wish List!  

Isn't this pretty!
