My Favourite Flower

I think everyone has a favourite flower and although I don't like cut flowers...I know I am strange... I do love hydrangeas. Blue is my favourite but I still love all the variations too. I had lots of cards to make for birthdays in April but got distracted by this lovely flower on the "the next big thing" cd. It came as a digi stamp and pre-coloured and I have used the pre-coloured version here. This is a very CAS card for me as I wanted the flower to really stand out but I do like the finished article and so easy to put together. I decoupaged the flower to give it some dimension and a bit of ribbon and voila all done.

Cardstock: Walmart (love these pads 30-50 sheets of 12x12 textured card for $5)
Ribbon: Buyology
Nailheads: Josy Rose

Laughing here about you and the prawns and today's Friday Feast Amanda. Have you never noticed that Kath hops in at almost every recipe saying there's something she doesn't like? It's become a bit of a standing joke now. One week I'm going to just do plain old roast beef and yorkies 'cos I know she loves that :)

Time you came and played on the swings in the snippets playground - but watch that duck pond!

Have a lovely day, go easy as it's Friday the 13th!
