Floral Greetings

Happy Sunday to you!  I hope you are having a blessed day!  it sure is gorgeous here in VA and we already have many bulbs popping up along with a few trees blossoming.   I spotted pansies last week while out shopping and I love the variety of colors from vibrant purples, to indigo's, to the subtle whites with hints of other hues in their centers.  I wanted to buy some but was fearful they would not last if the winter weather returned but looks like we have lovely weather for the next week!  Yeah!  What a treat indeed!
Which brings me to today's card.  I used a Bugaboo digi image that I was so happy to find.  I usually opt for the super cute ones but this new line they have caught my eye and I wanted a go at it.  :-)

I used some paper a friend sent me and then had this recycled tag I layered the image on.  The center of t pansies has yellow glitter but does not show as well as I had wished.    That's the challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays, go green or recycle.  Up to you to interpret.  
The tag was from an article of clothing.  It said "Safari is a way of life."  I tied a big piece of purple seam binding from Martha Stewart to help hide a little of it.  I also added a panel of bright yellow card stock at the bottom of the tag to cover a picture.  Looking at this from the first picture it kinda reads, "Hello Life"  and I like that.  :-)
I hope you will join us for the challenge!

Adorable card. I love pansies too. Did you know they can take cold weather. I don't know about snow, but they can take the cold spring nites. I always pick them up when they start showing up at local shops, because they don't like heat, and I like to enjoy them as long as I can. Hugs.
