Love Those Flowers!




This is one of my first Saturated Canary images. I think she is still one of my favorites. I am forcing myself to work more with my purples....yikes they are hard for me !  I think it helped me to work with a favorite image, but I still struggled. I do love the color combo and think it worked out well on this card. I also wanted to use these two flowers on my card. They were made by a good friend "Glenda" see more of her lovely work here ! She makes the most beautiful flowers and she sent me a lovely box of them that I have horded. I loved these beauties and have held back on using them. I know that is dumb but I just hated to let these little beauties go. But, I needed to make a card for a special friend and I thought this would be the perfect time to use them. My card has lots of sparkle that just can't be reflected in my picture. But in real life her dress and petticoat sparkles. I hope you enjoy this card and your week-end is a wonderful one. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Reba
If I had only known
It was the last walk in the rain
I'd keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a life line to my heart
Underneath the thunder we'd be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain
