Picked Just for You

How about a fresh picked jar of flowers just for you?   After two weeks of being gone, my flower beds were in disarray and full of weeds.  I worked on all the front beds and it's looking a lot tidier now....I could almost pick a few for a jar just like this.  

This is from the fabulous new set from Flourishes...Garden Picks.  It's such a sweet little set with the glass canning jar.  I chose the mixed bouquet today, as it's something like what I'd pick for a fresh cut bouquet....lots of color together.  I matched up my colors to this MME paper - On The Bright Side, stamping on Flourishes Classic White paper, as well as using it's great weight for the card base.  I would not go back to any other white cardstock.  I love the way it colors up, it's so affordable and it's excellent heavyness for a card base.  

And then I used this month's SFYTT layout from Jen.  

The Romantic Rectangles Spellbinder's Dies are used as the main shape, the edging behind the vertical layer as well as the sentiment.  Pulls it all together nicely.  The ribbon is sheer line edge ribbon (still available in red), as well as a few pearls to accent the sentiment (which uses Flourishes Tiny Flowers and Tags)
