I was recently browsing through the $1 bins at M's and came across these big flowers. I thought "Wow, that would be great on a card!'. Aren't they fabulous!
The flowers are actually pins. The pins are painted to match the flowers. Even better because I now have two embellishments!
And . . . here is what I did with it! I cut a 12x12 sheet of SU So Saffron into 6x12 so I could have a 6x6 size card. I'm loving that size! I embossed a pink piece of paper I had in my scrap stash and sanded it to bring some of the white out. I added a So Saffron ribbon around the card. I used the pink safety pin from the flower to attach the bunny button and tag to the ribbon. By the way, those tags are old SU ones. Points for me on using old stuff!
So, what do you think? I challenge you to look at things differently because you never know what gem you are passing up.
If you have an idea or a project using something different, drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
