Be like the flower





I am feeling much better today.  Thank you for all the Get Well wishes.  Joan Fricker, from Joan's Gardens,  asked me to do a workshop for her in May and I have been working this morning with her to figure out the projects we will be doing.  I have not actually met Joan yet so I am very excited to meet her and to go out and do this workshop. 

This afternoon we are having a Super Bowl party, but have some free time, so decided to make a card with some of the flowers I have stamped from Melanie's  "A Year of Flowers" stamp set. I stamped the lillies on yellow vellum paper and cut them out.  The leaves and stems are also stamped on vellum.  The background paper is from the Basic Grey "Origins" paper pad.  I cut out a white and green scalloped circle with Nestabilities.  The white one was embossed with the dotted Swiss Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The flowers were arranged on the top portion of this circle.  The bottom is a piece of barely banana cs with another piece of the dp from the paper pack.  I know what you are going to say -- my verse doesn't fit in the tag but I really wanted to use this tag and that verse, so even though it doesn't fit correctly, I used it.  The verse is from Melanie's "Say it with Flowers" set and was so perfect for these yellow lillies, don't you think.  The tag is from Spellbinders and I purchased it from Gina K Designs.  I used a MS border along the top of the tag then added some pale yellow pearls to finish it off.

 I sometimes think I have probably made every card I can with this "Year of Flowers" stamp set, but there is always something  that pops to mind and has been my most used stamp set.  I think I might actually wear this one out, LOL.  If you don't have this set, I highly recommend getting it because you can always use a great flower stamp set.  Melanie has a new release coming out next week.  Be sure to watch Gina K's blog for the previews.

Enjoy Super Bowl Sunday!!!!

Selma, this is absolutely stunning! I have those same flowers stamped and cut out on my stamping table but mine are pink. I am also in love with this set and can't wait to see what Melanie has in store for us. Thanks for the constant inspirations.
