Oh Alice Flower Challenge

Because I love flowers so much, I thought that the current flower challenge over at Oh Alice would be right up my alley! Although an idea came quickly, the execution took far too long! I do think I'll try making a few different versions of this card using some different papers. I like the idea but I found that I didn't like the sentiment on the front with the geometric pattern of this paper. Perhaps a sentiment will look better when using different paper. This is also the first time that I have used the sugar beads that I picked up at the amazing She Runs With Scissors store during my summer trip to BC. I had fun with them and can't wait to try more ideas with them in some future projects!
Flower stamp: Carol's Flower by Stampotique
Paper: Heidi Swapp, K&Co.

"The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size."
