One more botanical

I was thinking about the challenge at Moxie Fab World: Fanatical about Botanical and couldn't believe that I didn't use one of my favorite flower stamps for a card to enter.  I don't think I will ever tire of this Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp - it is one of my all-time favorites.  I usually color it blue because I've always wanted one of the blue ones in our garden.....supposedly they don't do well here in NE Ohio, so this is as close as I can get.


supplies: kraft card base, background paper: K&Company "Brenda Walton Flora & Fauna" ledger paper, Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea, K5354 French Post, LL040 Woodland Ferns, CL490 Sending Smiles Messages, Versafine Vintage Sepia and Onyx Black inks, shabby shutters and vintage photo distress inks, Prismacolor pencils, crochet lace from Carole, blue button from my button jar, natural twine, sewing machine and thread
