better than expected (CPT)

Just picked DS up from a friend's a couple towns over and it is peak season in the vineyards.  Harvest.  In our town they say "in den Herbst" (literally:  in the fall) and with it they mean harvesting the grapes.  Shows you how big a role the wine plays in our area.  I LOVE how there is still such a connection to the earth and Mother Nature.  Except, of course, when I get stuck behind a humongeous harvester on the road and he's only going 10 mph!

What I also LOVE, actually AM ENAMOURED WITH, is this bloom.

This is the prize over at The Creative Paper Trade for the current challenge #2.

You may recall my dilemma with the lavender colors, here.  Well this time I went to my fabric stash and it was easy peasy.  I love how this bloom turned out.

And the card.  Better than expected!  I used a freebie postcard digi from the site as well.  Check it here.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Paper: cardbase Buttinette,  PP Ursus, digi papers Creative Paper Trade
