Around the House

Hi everyone!

My dear husband and I have been out of town since Thursday visiting our daughter at college, so now I'm scrambling a little to get a challenge or two done before the deadline!  I didn't want to miss the Flourishes challenge this week, but it was a HARD one for me!  The challenge was to use something you would find around the house.  I think I should have corrugated a piece of a toilet paper tube, but instead I grabbed the first thing I saw, which was a paper towel, and ran down to my craft area to put together a card.

I stitched my *ahem* embossed background {aka paper towel!!} to a mat of blue cardstock... it kept spreading out though, so not as much of the mat is visible as when I started!  The adorable bookplate and tag dies are stamped with images from the Botanical Bookplates 2 set.  I colored the Lilies of the Valley with Prismacolor pencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
