Build-A-Flower: Larkspur

Larkspurs belong to the buttercup family and are native throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The flowers bloom in a variety of colors from white to blue-violet. Larkspur flowers are irregularly shaped and bloom loosely along a vertical stem. This stamp set includes a fivelayer larkspur bloom, threelayer leaf, and 11 sentiment words. There are flower and leaf outline images included, which can be used with the layer images or on their own with different coloring mediums.

Here's how the set layers:
