Night Blooming Cactus

When I lived in Florida, many years ago, we had a huge night blooming cactus in our yard.  The blossoms would open up at night and closed before morning.  I took this photo using time lapse and  multiple flashes.  I also took the picture using slide film so this is a scan from a slide.  The scan wasn't all that great so I played around in PS and added some special effects.

The papers are from the May Swirlydoos kit, Grandma's Garden, featuring Glitz Laced with Grace collection.  I think this is one of my favorite paper lines ever.  sure am glad I ordered an extra pp and CS !

I started with a sheet of pale yellow Bazzill, I wantedt o add some white elements to tie in to the blooms so I stamped flourishes on the Bazzill and heat embossed with white embossing powder.    The black flourishes at the bottom are printed on a transparency (thank you Robin @ Swirlydoos for the images!).  The flowers are layered Petaloo Color Me Crazy sprayed with a pearly whie Smooch.  I love the Petaloo vines that are accented with gold.  I also printed the title on a transparency and glued it to the Websters journal card.
