Home Sweet Home

Springtime in Oregon means rhododendrons.  Thought you might enjoy seeing this one with pinky-peachy blooms, which I love.
Now for my card.  Can't miss a chance to win the new Flourishes release!  The challenge is to be inspired by something around your home HERE.  I chose this lamp that belonged to my grandmother.  I believe it's an antique, but I love it because of the sentimental value & I think it's so beautiful.  I used Flourishes Thinking of You set.  The images are white embossed on light blue cardstock that is die cut with Spellbinders Labels Ten.  The mat is a soft beige shimmer cardstock inspired by the brass on the lamp.  I added a panel of vellum under the die cuts.  I'll probably use this for my thank you card to the gal who has been training me for 3 weeks.  That's a long time to not be able to just do your job like usual & she's been very patient with me. Hope you're having a lovely week with some crafting time.
