One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

I took the inspiration from two of the pillows...I used Aqua Mist background paper and stamped TANL and  flowers from Daydreamer with New Leaf Ink.  I took a strip of Lemon Tart paper and ran it through my crimper to give the effect of a pleat...topped it off with a piece of new leaf satin ribbon (sure wished I had a narrower ribbon in that color!)  I added the lemon tart dots with a 5/8 hole punch...the "hello" is from Happy Hydrangea.

  1. Colleen, this is beautiful and spot on for the photo! Love your take on the photo and the fresh clean and simple look of it. The crimped paper was a great idea. I used mine the other day, other wise I have not seen it for years.
