Mission: Flowers

Over the last few years, flowers were popular on cards.  I got a lot of them from crafty friends...but I didn't use them too much. I would like to pride myself on not being a horder.  I will use a rhinestone on anything that doesn't move these days.  So, when I saw the  FS gallery, I was inspired by a floral layout. Here are 2 takes on it. 

Love the simple, yet darling, sentiments by Paper Makeupstamps.




So...be assured there will be lots of flowers coming up!  Although, it dawned on my while I was uploading that "April showers bring May flowers" would ahve meant that I used dewdrops on my cards this month and the primas next!  But there are so much you can do with Pimas to decorate them with eyelets, brads, rhinestones, buttons, more flowers, ribbons...what was I waiting for??

Great use of the primas!! I am a hoarder ('cause if I use it, I won't have it! hehe) but I need to pull out my primas and put them to use!

Love the angled row of flowers on your cards. I would use my prima flowers if I could remember the safe place that I put them! haha I've been looking for them for a couple months now....
