...the poetry of earth

Our Badge!!!Time for another challenge at Words 2 Scrap By & I hope my card inspires you to join us.  This month our theme is in celebration of Book Lovers Day & we have a list of titles to inspire you on our blog.  I chose "The Good Earth" & surprisingly the only stamping is the old Hero Arts sentiment.  I failed to make a note of who gave me the MME Bluebell printed paper pad, but I know it was a sweet blogging friend. One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a cup of coffee & a stamping magazine. It doesn't have to be new & in fact, this card was inspired by a Lindsay Amrhein creation in a 2012 issue.  I fell in love with the blossoms she made out of circles & just had to give it a try.  
Turned out to be easy & fun so I just might use printed paper again--LOL!  The flower center is clear embossed & a few pearls are the only embellishment.  I love sending cards when someone isn't expecting it & now I have another one ready to go.  So glad you took time to come by & I hope to see you in the gallery--you have until August 28th. I'm entering Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday.
