Forgotten Flowers....

Do you ever do this---- you stamp something and really like it but aren't really inspired to put it into a card so you take the stamped and colored image and you stuff it in a drawer of cards waiting to be finished? I do! Well, I was cleaning out some of those drawers recently when I stumbled upon an old hydrangea image I had colored. It is an old PSX stamp that I still love. I used watercolor pencils to color it and added some stickles to the flowers' centers. Well, I recently got my hands on the Radiant paper pack from Craft Secrets and I thought the green paisley paper in the pack was perfect for my card. It was classic-- just like a hydrangea!


All I did was distress my main floral image, mat it on some lavender, add some sheer ribbon and then attach it to my card front on a slant. If I knew a card would be so easy to put together, I would never have "forgotten" about these flowers in a drawer!

Hope life is treating you all well. Here at the Koerber house, we are getting ready for Halloween! Tonight we decked out the house and tomorrow we start to bag up goodies for the kiddos classes. My mom and I are making chocolate witch suckers. They are too cute! I'll have a show and tell later this week!

Until then.... Happy Stamping!
