I love these little natural beauties. They pop up all over in fields around Germany. Only last about a day, but how lovely. Made my own little lovely.
A red polyester scrap of fabric (I think it was a pirate scarf for DS back in the kindergarten days). Some freehand cut circles. A heat tool to crinkle the edges. Some black seed beads in the center.
Then a little stamping on recycled packing paper. Made into a tag thanks to an eyelet and raffia. Then an uber-gorgeous begonia (hope my girlfriend has better luck with them than I do - but it was so luscious I couldn't resist) and the bday present is complete.
On another note... do ya'll - BTW, I am just shocked that there are 24 of you out in blogland that like to see what I do. I'm honored. Flabbergasted actually - know cardmaker, photographer, artist Colleen D. over at Dietrich Designs? She is one talented lady. Can you believe those amazing butterflies? Anyhoo, I had sent her a little something awhile ago and received the most gorgeous thank you card today. I can share it with you cuz it's here in all its moxiefabness. You should see those little butterflies IRL. So shimmery.
Here's a big hug to all the wonderful talent-sharing, support-giving, beauty-loving cardmakers out there. So nice to hang out with you all!
