forever ...

The hand made flower on this ATC is made with several stampings of the HERO ARTS Printed Flowers (three sizes), inked up, a hole punctured in the centre of each flower, all layers put together with a brad, flower misted with water, crunched up, shaped and left to dry. If that sounds a bit complicated, it's not. Also used was HERO ARTS All Occasion Messages, the leaf from Find Joy, the script from Bird Collage and French Post.  I used a small piece of sheet music, patterned paper, I did a little sewing and added quite a few gems.

I hope you had a wonderful day !

Here is another photo of the cubs, they're getting a bit bigger.  They were jumping and playing until they spotted me taking their photograph, then they became very interested in me!
Thanks so much for visiting!

    It is so my kind of style, you have made a wonderful flower, and making it centre stage works so well, your choice of PP with the stitching gives this card good form.
