More pink


I am not a chrysanthemum person, but I make an exception for these ones.  I don't know what kind they are, but they resemble daisies more than my idea of the usual mum.  They are a transplant from a dear friends' garden.  They take absolutely no care and are just now blooming, so welcome in our garden right now.  I thought I'd share them along with this CASE of Lisa Spangler's wreath card that was on the Hero Arts blog last week.  I immediately fell in love with it, and made a special trip to the craft store to find a wider ribbon than I have on hand.  This gingham one was on sale at Michael's this week, and I scooped it up.  Here's a closer look at the card:


I stamped the wreath of leaves 3 times in 3 different brown inks on an ivory parchment cardstock, added the sentiment, some pink and white pearls in different sizes, the ribbon, and edged the card in spun sugar distress ink.  So easy, but I love the result.

Supplies: ivory parchement cardstock, Hero Arts CG215 Wreath of Leaves, CL343 Holiday Sayings, Memories artprint brown,  Anita's teddy bear and Palette burnt umber inks, 7/8" gingham ribbon from Michael's, pink and white pearls

  12. Lin, those flowers are simply called "Daisy Mums." I love them! They come in a variety of colors: Pink, purple, yellow and white, to name a few. I love the ones in your photo! Your card is so pretty! I think this one would be easy enough to make multiples of for Christmas. I too love the results! Gorgeous with the pearls and bow! So glad you are here to inspire me!
