Bloom & Grow Forever

When I read the sentiment, my mind thought of Edelweiss from The Sound of Music.  My all time favorite movie.  Every year I watch it and it still moves me.  Years ago, my husband took me to see the musical with Christopher Plummer.  It was a fabulous show! 
So my card for today is a little bit vintage mixed with shabby and a dash of MOD.  I love the colors of the paper that I used but sadly can't recollect the name because I threw that part away.   The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  I used a Tiffany Doodle's  image which I added punched hydrangea's  accented with  Stickle centers.  I did some distressing via a nail file and also a touch of stitching.  My tiny attacher added the piece of ribbon.  Pearls are Queen & Co

 Just realized this photo does not show the true detail of the flowers.  Bummer.  I can't go out and retake because we have awful weather here.  It's been raining something fierce.  Lots of places are flooded.  I don't even want to think about it after the tornado hit last month and did some rearranging of items on my roof and home structure, I am a little tired of mother nature. Okay, my checkbook is not liking it so much. 

It's for this week's Crafty Creations #118 challenge, flowers,  pattern paper, and a ribbon hosted by Donna. (Way to go girly!) Many thanks to  Tiffany Doodle's for sponsoring us this week.  Huge welcome to the new design team ladies you can read about them here!  We are thrilled to have you on!  :-)  Come join us please and see the DT creations!

What a beauty, love the color combination too!


Mother nature is a bit too hard on you; poor you. I know what you mean but we never experienced terrible things such as tornadoes......
Your card is gorgeous. It's a little bit of this and a little bit of that :) but together it's a gorgeous handmade jewel!

Take care; I hope spring will settle down in your part of the world!
