Saying it with flowers

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”  Iris Murdoch

I think Murdoch was right.  For this card, I just wanted to highlight the floral paper.  It is a “Get Well” card and flowers do so cheer us up.

get well 2The card base if Papertrey Ink’s Vintage cream cardstock.  It is topped with a layer of Ocean Tides.  (I tell you, this is now my favourite colour paper!)  It goes so well with everything.

The floral paper is from Authentique’s “Lovely” collection and it is named “Fancy.”  I wanted to show off this paper on this card because it is so absolutely gorgeous!

To embellish, I simply added some pink ribbon in two shades, Sprite flowers with a gem in the middle and a Spellbinders fancy oval in PTI’s Fine Linen stamped “Thinking of you” from Sizzix.

This card used the same colour combo as this card and look at the difference!

One thought on “Saying it with flowers

  1. This is so great to have found you so only my 2nd time here – the first was on the 27th to see the duller card & to me it was just that dull but this, this paper is beautiful so immediately turned the card around from a more male card to a beautiful Spring Flower card. Just blooming wonderful!
    I live on an island called the garden of flowers too!
    Love in Christ
