First flower for ages! the Begonia

Seems like such a long time since we did Floral Punch Craft, must have been before Christmas I think, I must admit to having quite a few memory blocks with this one LOL, but it turned out okay, the flower is a Begonia, there are lots of different types of this flower. The begonia flower is sometimes thought to represent fear, and when given to another person, some people believe that it is a warning to beware. On the other hand, it typically represents a person with a dreamy, almost innocent nature. As a gift, these are often presented to creative individuals and children because of their fanciful symbolism and their simple, unsullied beauty. These flowers can be given in the traditional bouquet, as a single flower, or within a hanging basket.

I am entering this in the papertake weekly challenge, one for the girls, or Mum, all girls like flowers I think?

Wow Jenni! These are just gorgeous. I love these flowers. We have some bright orange ones out and they last for weeks. Yours look so real.
I love them on the white embossed background too. super job.

Oh Jenni, this is stunning!! I love the information you give us about the flowers too. Someone once gave me a begonia as a birthday present - I suppose I am a 'creative individual', lol!
