Prima flowers take my breath away...i must point out honestly that i'm not a 'flower' person, meaning i like fresh flowers on my table but put fake flower embellishments in front of me & i wouldn't know nuts what to do with them. Totally envious of peeps who can execute layouts & cards with tons of flowers beautifully...:) So what i'm not good at i do least of. Just a really simple card with ONE gorgeous prima layered flower as the focal point. I masked off the sides of the card with some printer paper & stamped a distressed grid (from Unity stamp co.) using Papertreyink's 'Snow fresh' ink. Really good white pigment ink that one. Some white stitching with my fave white uniball pen , stick on some basic grey 'white' microchip alphas + a small sentiment and done. Feels good when u do something simple & clean. I think the key is to know when you have to stop adding things to your project; which is seriously tough!
It's my birthday tomorrow & i'm in self denial of turning another year older. Like 'i just want to switch my phone off & hole myself up alone at home' kind of denial. Not much success to that so far....
Anyways I thought it was really sweet that friends sent me birthday wishes on facebook & i find it only polite to acknowledge them all by posting a thank you reply note (via facebook again of course). Looking forward to a day of doing nothing tomorrow with my guy (utter bliss!) & my tea party on saturday :)
Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend!
