How many times did my mother or I grab a canning jar to fill with beautiful blooms from our yard? No one ever noticed the utilitarian jar under the weight of the gorgeous blossoms, the fruit of our labors in the garden. This card is reminiscent of those days.
One of the interesting things about this card is the paper I used. Other than my Core-dinations pastels, the patterned paper is by Paula Deen! (I wonder if it’s fattening??) They had these mini-packs of several different designs in the dollar bins at Michael’s. Both my sister and I had to get one of each…
There was no ink used in the making of this card but I did use Stickles and Glossy Accents from Ranger and a little corner embellishment from Wild Orchid Crafts. The string and the silver ribbon are from my stash and I made the flowers… sort of. I purchased some silk hydrangea from the floral department and pulled the tiny mini-blossoms off. As I watched TV one night, I painted the edges with glue and dipped them in Diamond Dust. Then, I added some Joann’s dollar bin pearls to the centers.
Wow! Is it late! I’d better get this entered right away. Let me hear from you… you know I love it!
