Mother's day flower meadow


I have had some good finds in wallpaper recently. The outdated sample books are heavy to carry but great to recycle for cards or altered objects.

This image is so pretty that it doesn't need a lot added for embellishment. I decided to leave the white space mostly free and instead have the wording at the very top of the card. I used outline stickers on a satin ribbon together with one of my new Dimension butterflies.

What a lovely card! Love the idea of using wallpaper - I go and get some of the tear of strips from our local superstore - they must think I have such a hard time making up my mind!
