This week the Teapotters are headed to Wisconsin, to bring some good thoughts and cheer to Jean. Cancer has once again been found in Jean. Jean loves to make others happy, so now it's time for the Teapotters to make Jean happy.
We were to bring cactus, flowers, and or hairdresser themed cards. I have no hairdresser stamps, and have some cactus stamps, but they've been used before, so I went with a flower and leaves.
This card seemed to take forever. I tried several flowers, several layouts and such, none of them really working. The flowers needed some leaves so I die cut a bunch in white and green. This is what I came up with in the end. The sentiment is ODBD. This is a great set of sentiments. I sponged some light yellow around the edge of the lacy oval, but most of it got covered when I added the leaves.
I hope all these wonderful cards bring a lot of cheer to Jean.

How stunning this is Jennifer! I absolutely adore the yellow lace trim. It's so dainty and feminine. And the wreath you made with the leaves around the lacey frame is gorgeous. Such a clever idea! I love that sentiment too. It is so true. Thanks for playing along today. I know Jean will love this. Hugs~~

Oh, I know those cards - and you end up with a pile of discarded bits and pieces on the desk afterwards :D. This looks fantastic - the simple leaf wreath is a wonderful frame for the sentiment, and I really like the soft, light feel from using white to emboss the little flower.
