Q & A Where can I buy those gorgeous flowers and other embellishments?

It's time for another Q&A

The next question I get asked a lot is where can you find all those gorgeous flowers and other embellishments you see on the Magnolia cards. There are several places you can buy these but I also challenge you to look everywhere around you because you can find all kinds of embellishments and a lot of times it's much cheaper. Go ahead think outside the box, a little glitter and bling to an item can really jazz something dull into something fabulous!
Prima flowers
Susanascustomartandcarddesign has all kinds of prima flowers, petaloo flowers, pins, bling, etc
StampingScrapping has magnolia and prima flowers and well as some bling
Wild Orchard Crafts has everything Magnolia such as flowers, lace, pins, chandeliers, etc. They are in the UK but I have found shipping is very reasonable. A question I get with these are what size to order. I found this information so hopefully it will help. "I went with an array of sizes from 8mm to 25mm. 25mm are the perfect size. It measures about the size of a nickle. The 10mm are a great petite size as well as the 15mm. They are perfect to layer on other flowers" 
Simon Says Stamps has flowers, charms, and other embellishments
Martha Stewart punches are great for leaves, flowers, borders, etc

I hope this will get you started if you've been looking to purchase some flowers and if you have others please post or email me and I'll update this post with the information. Also don't forget about making your own. There are several tutorials out on youtube and the net in general to show  you how to make your own.

Have a blessed day
