The Blessings of Wildflowers

**Did you see the new stamp sets I have for sale?  Check out the post below this one or the page tab under my blog header that says "Stamps for Sale".**


I love seeing wildflowers growing in the fields & ditches as we are driving down the road.  They just really bless me.  We even have some variety of wildflowers back by our garage and they are so pretty.  This card that I have to share today uses wildflowers for my inspiration (and yes, again, I used the "With Sympathy" set.  Hope you aren't tired of it yet!)


I have wanted a grass image for a long time and tonight as I was looking through my sets, I had to hit my forehead with a big "DUH" when I realized that the "With Sympathy" set had a great grass image (for the cat tails).  I stamped the grass across the frame at a tall height and then again at a shorter height to give it depth and make it full.  Then I added the flowers (from "With Sympathy" & "Beautiful Blooms II"). 


The butterfly was stamped with gingham but it is hard to see in the photo.


Thanks for coming by today!! I hope you have a beautiful day and a weekend full of blessings!

  3. I LOVE this card and what's even more strange to me is I am playing with a very similar layout (square image being the focal point)...I love what you've done- you've inspired me to want to leave work and go home and finish my card :)
