Make a Wish

Here's one more card using the sketch from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I wanted to do something with the Big Pinks flowers. Although the flowers don't "match" the paper per se, they don't clash either, so I thought it would be OK to use them together.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Twilight cardstock; Floral Tapestry paper packet; Twilight and Bamboo ink pads; Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp set; Just Blooms Big Pinks paper flowers; Stampin' Up Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon; Acrylic discs from Michael's; Liquid Glass; 3/4 and 1-inch circle punches; Sanding block.

Now, I'm off to do some household chores before Bjorn and Mathias get here. I think a quick trip to the grocery store is in order, too. Grandma's refrigerator and cupboards are devoid of anything three and four-year-olds would consider "good." The trouble is what's "good" one week isn't necessary good the next week. They're a bit fickle with regard to food these days with the exception of anything that isn't "good" for them. I remember how this works and think I still know how to trick kids into eating nutritious food. Peas are popular with the second generation like they were with the first, only because we call them "Power Pellets." Bjorn wants peas regardless of what else is served, and I'm only to glad to accommodate him.

Enough jabber. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping. I'll catch you later.

Love your paper choice and I'd love to see you continue to use the big pinks, as I have trouble feeling inspired to use the bigger big blooms!

This is VERY pretty! The blooms look great and the three discs in the center fit perfectly!

I might have liked peas if I was told they were power pellets. As it was I have never liked them, and used to try to swallow instead of chew them, and choked one time. It's a texture thing, I think.
