I was overjoyed when Stampin' Up! sent the set Time Well Spent out to every active demo in December of 2007, I instantly fell in love with the images and sayings, yet I find that I rarely reach for it when I'm creating so I decided to change that...I was looking through the gallery at Splitcoast when I came across this lovely card and was inspired to create these 2 cards...
This first card is the card for my samples, so I stayed with mostly all Stampin' Up! product. I did use some stickes on the flower and the leaves to just add some interest. I watercolored the flower and leaves using my aqua painter and my ink pads. I added a large flower brad from the Styled Silver HPH. I really do like the looks of this card.
Here is the version I'm going to send out to someone...I used some verigated sheer ribbon I got at Michael's in place of the blue stripe ribbon and only used the green stickles in the ends of the leaves instead of all around them. I used a different brad for the center of this card, it has a small flower and says genuine.
