A Pretty Thank You


My sweet parents brought me the most beautiful hydrangea plant on Mother's Day. I decided to try to make a matching thank you card using the Walk in My Garden cartridge. I cut the hydrangeas (using my Gyspy) at 3.6", 3.9", and 4.2". The flower pot is cut at 1.8", and I popped up the layer with some pop dots. I also wrapped it with some twine and attached a little thank you tag created with a Papertrey Ink die in my Cuttlebug.


Here is a look at the actual flowers. Aren't they gorgeous? I have them right outside my kitchen window, so that I'm looking out at them when I do dishes.
