Beauty is all Around Us!

It is very quiet here this evening as DD1 and DD2 are on their first EVA sleepover...it is so quiet!!!! DH & DS are watching a movie and I...well, here I am...I have achieved a fair bit today, even finding a bit more of my desk....I am making the most of the quiet (although...on the quiet...as noisy as the girls can be...I am missing them)...I am not sure who will find it harder at bedtime - them or me...we have already had one phone call...I am sure there will be more before the night is through!!!
Anyways, I have enjoyed using my new set by Stampin' Up 'Blooming with Beauty' and have made this card for the Ways to Use it Challenge and the Flourishes Challenge....I love this colour combo and it works so well with this image...our hyderangers are this colour as autumn sets in and foliage everywhere is changing colour and flowers drying and dying!
I have watercoloured the hydrangers and then added Kindy Glitz to the very centre for a bit of sparkle, the way they do when the morning dew has brushed against their petals....the corners done with the SU Eyelet Border Punch, which I used on the top DP. All edges are sponged, I just love this ribbon and have been waiting for a chance to use it - the colours are perfect with these colours..and half beads have been added to the center of each flower, which qualifies it for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
This was my last card for my friend's order....so I guess I will be playing with other stamps....I have quite a few sets I haven't played with much and also some RAK's that I am looking forward to using!!!
I love it that you have dropped by, it makes my day to read your comments...thank you for being so kind and supportive! God bless you!
