When visiting my sister a couple years ago she was cleaning out some of her craft supplies and this package of paper flowers was in the bag of things she gave me. In this little bag was one big flower and two smaller one purple and one white and then two different sizes of leaves. I decided to get them out and open the package the other day, and so glad I finally did, you see each of those flowers was a stack of flowers and they are really fine, like tissue paper. I decided to use my stylus and a mat to shape them a little to give dimension. My hubby says won't they get flattened in the envelope, I said I don't know but we will see.
I added a stem from the spellbinder die so that they weren't just floating there. This is going to a long time friend we met on our way over to England back in 1995 when both of our husbands were already over in England and it was time for the families to join them.

Some of our trees are starting to bud and the plants are peeking up through the ground, spring is on it's way, so love seeing the earth come to life.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, and letting me know you did,
