Planting Seeds of Happiness

Here's a stunning image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Valerie Wade called "Planting Seeds" (Plate#118). I love this artist's amazing fairy images. I just had to add some stunning floral lace that I got while in Turkey, along with some beautiful butterflies. After that, I think the image stands out enough that the card doesn't need any more embellishing.I added little polka dots with a gold pen around the diecut and gently edged the cardstock of the image with some Colorbox Chalk in a deep pink. Here's a closeup of the stampIsn't she just adorable? Makes me think of a little girl running around the meadow, only instead of picking flowers, this little girl is spreading seeds that will turn into flowers.

Hope this card inspires you today to grab a stamp and make a card. Be sure to check out all the wonderful stamps on sale at Sweet Pea as well as the new stamps that are just released. Also, I am having a wonderful celebration all month long in Feb! I am about to hit my TWO year anniversary for having two brain surgeries that saved my life. It's been so amazing and I can't even tell you how wonderful I am now. Stop by my blog as there's blog candy almost everyday this month! Big hugs to Sweet Pea stamps!! They were a tremendous support for me when I was so sick that I can't possibly thank them enough. Sweet Pea stamps ROCK!!

Cheers all, Holley
