Just a card this time. No personal sharing about my crazy but loving sisters! No whining about DIY projects gone awry! No more grousing about over use of bling! No more griping about creating a Christmas card homage to Star Trek and Star Wars!
Today, this post is just about the card! Oh and inspirational friends! My sweet blog friend Julie at Rainbow Days reminded me that there is a challenge at Lavinia Stamps to create something using a Lavinia image and incorporating flowers. Well her work is ALWAYS over-the-top gorgeous! So getting inspiration from her is always easy peasy! While I doubt I will ever manage to create 'gossamer wings' I did manage to incorporate flowers while using a long neglected item from my stash: Flower Soft. Thank you Julie!
What with a shop dedicated to 'wands and wishes' this could only be a birthday card for someone who appreciates gossamer winged fairies and sprites!
