Mod Topiaries!

Hi all! Hope you are having a great start to your week! I got a little something to show and tell today that I think is kind of fun! Quick post for a quick to create card!

When I first saw this image from Impression Obsession, I immediately thought Christmas - Christmas topiaries, Christmas stars-- you know-- it should be done up in green and red! Then, I said - Nope! Not going to do it! I chose pink and green and decided there's no reason why this cute image called Mini Topiaries needs to be Christmas at all!

This card was really easy peasy! I stamped the image using Memories Tuxedo Black and then colored the pots and greenery with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen. The Pink portions of the "trees" were actually paper pieced using the decorative paper from the same Stampin' Up decorative paper pack (all paper except for base and main image are from Raspberry Tart, white is Whisper White from SU). Paper pierce the edge, add some grosgrain ribbon and some bling and you are done! Like I said -- easy peasy -- and cute!

Happy Tuesday everyone! See you all back here soon!
