Friday flowers

Here’s to hoping that the rain dumping on us in mid-March will bring spring flowers just like May showers! Until then we have all of the beautiful floral illustrations recently created by our fabulous community of designers to tide use over.

Just this afternoon, we announced the winners from our Good Housekeeping Keep in Touch challenge. Kelli Hall’s poppies won her a first prize in the women’s personalized stationery category… isn’t it interesting to see a flower in reverse color like this?

Gakemi’s stunning watercolor poppies look an awful lot like California’s state flower, don’t you think? I think that the flowers from both of these lovely ladies will make many a mother’s heart go a flutter come this Mother’s Day.

Poppies do seem to be Minted’s signature flower. Cheree’s take on the poppy just launched in our selection of wedding invitations.

The poppies on Bibliotheque have been a longtime favorite across multiple categories.

I see gray everywhere these days–it sure is the neutral color of the moment. The gray flowers in Laura Hankin’s Lemon Lace also got her to the Good Housekeeping top ten.

I love Wiley Valentine’s pink cherry blossoms paired with gray type.

Also in the flower branch category, Annie Clark’s Apple Blossoms makes use of a gray background.

And more new branches… what about these Dogwood branches in a bright yellow?

And late last night, we launched some additional Baptism & Christening announcements.

Marabou’s bulbs are so fresh and modern and combine to form a brilliant pattern.
