Paper Blooms - It's A Flower, But It's Not

The challenge this time around on Paper Blooms was to use a flower as something other than a flower and as you can see by my card I have done just that. Although it does look kinda funny lol. I used the Tim Holtz "Man With An Umbrella" stamp from one of his Idealology sets as is the sentiment from the same set. The flowers are from my stash and I have folded them in half but when I look at it the umbrella appears to have turned itself inside out in the wind lol but I did follow the contours of the umbrella itself. All cardstock is from Stampin'Up! including the white gel pen and the Chocolate Chip stamp pad. However it is Ranger Distress Ink around the edges of the card. (my husbands idea, he said it gives the image depth!)

Okay that is it for me now I have to go and make some vintage journals for the local book shop who wants to stock my products.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
