Colourful Seeds

Wow, it took forever for this card to come together. This is created for this weeks Sketch Challenge. It seems I'm not the only one into circles right now...LOL. Since flowers grow outside and you have to deal with insects and such....I'm also posting this to Stamp Something's challenge this week which is to create a wild card of some sort.

For this card I used my Blooms and Bulbs wheel. I like these little seed packages. I layered Bashful Blue grosgrain and White Taffeta ribbon. There's no hardware, no bows....I think after 2 hours I just wanted it stuck together!!!! However, I now have bits and pieces to use to create more cards. Does anyone else have a draw full of prestamped, precoloured pieces just looking for a card base?

I was going to go to school today to clean some things up, but I don't feel like it anymore. We're going to see kd lang tonight, so I think I'll just relax and enjoy my afternoon.

Thanks for dropping by.....Happy Stampin' - JOAN
