Catch the bug / humor Wednesday / Flowers say Hello

Wednesday February 25, 2015
 
 

Did you know that February 28th is Floral Design Day??   I didn't either and wanted to make a card for this day and since I don't arrange flowers I felt safe with a single rose.. It's designed... as single floral design.. right up my alley.  I used the image fancy rose vase   I had the brown and green put together for another card but I did not like it for that card so I decided since it was still sitting on my craft table off to the side.. would this work on this card.. Yup it worked. I just cant throw away anything and again I am glad I didn't. I wanted the rose to stand out and it does against those colors.  I did the embossed background in clear embossing powder using a wood grain PTI stamp, I like the added texture it gives to the card. I love this sentiment it's from hero arts.

It's perfect! I have done the same thing. Something didn't work and months may go buy and then viola...the card vase works for something else even better. I like digital sentiments but love when you have the perfect stamp and can apply embossing to give it that extra little texture and pop,

Isn't it great when you can save a cast-off on your desk?! I think your rose is perfect on that background.
