Polly is this week's hostess for the Teapot Tuesday challenge ~ MMTPT561 Hug-a-thon.
I was trying to think if I had any images relating to hugs, but since we were told that Amanda likes hydrangeas and blue, I thought I'd run with that. I'm not sure if these flowers are actually hydrangeas, but they're close enough.
Wrinkle free distress on white card with distress oxide. When dry, I stamped and embossed the verse, and stamped the image twice along the bottom and embossed it. Used bleach to bleach out the leaves (which were actually lovely in white, but I wanted the contrast of the green so I used reinker to colour them), and the blossoms. Added Stickles to the blossoms. Matted onto gold mirror card and then a white base.
I'm not a big embellishments person, but Stickles and Liquid Pearls are certainly staples in my repertoire, and since it's the Stickles that live under my desk while I have to walk over to a shelf for the Liquid Pearls, it must be that Stickles are my favourite.

Just a beautiful card for Amanda, Sabrina. I love the verse and your pretty flower garden. Really, I love every inch of this card. I had a chuckle about why your Stickles were your favorite this time. :)
