Shopping Our Stash #

Tuesday!  Time for another challenge over at Shopping Our Stash.  

This week our challenge is "Flower Power".  Use your handmade or 3D flowers! (your project can include stamped images but it also needs to have at least one flower that is either handmade or a 3D flower you bought.  Think Wild Orchid Crafts, puffy stickers, Primas, etc.)

 I have to admit my card only has one little handmade flower.  I used a gorgeous digital image (stash item #1....i've had it easily 6 months) from Janet at Digital Paper.  If you haven't been to her shop yet you really need to.  I have several of her sets and they are to die for!
This image is one of two in the set called Magic Garden.  Gorgeous, no?  I matted the image three times, added some green rhinestones to the upper left corner and...
I used some silk ribbon (another stash item) to stitch my own iris in the lower left corner.  I added a small yellow seed bead (from my stitching stash) to the center of the flower.
I used some new stamps and dies from Becca Feeken to embellish the inside.  I had the most wonderful visit with one of my closest friends last week and I made this card to send her.  (This card isn't square.  I used a pre-scored card with a matching envelope that has been in my stash since last November)
The other ladies on the Design Team have some great floral creations for you so go check them out.  Then dig into your stash and play along this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
