I decided to stroll around my yard and take a picture of one of the thousands of rose blooms I have right now. I expected to use one of them, but when I saw I had my first waterlily bloom in one of my ponds, I knew I had to use it.
So, I took several pictures, chose the best one, and printed it off and matted it with some Nestabilities layers. I wanted the picture to be the center of attention, so I kept everything else kind of simple, but vintage-y :) I love to sit by one of my ponds and listen to the waterfall--it's so peaceful. This sentiment, from Waterlily suggests "peace" to me, so I chose to use it on this card. I stamped a waterlily leaf (also in the set) twice, side by side on patterned paper, cut it out in one piece and used it to mat the sentiment, which was stamped on Blush Blossom and punched out. A few embellishments, and it was done!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join us in this challenge--and be sure to take a look at what my teammates have come up with, as well.
