A Weed Is A Plant

Here is another of my cards currently appearing in Paper Creations magazine.  I fell in love with the beautifully intricate dandelion stamp at the April Heirloom stamp EXPO in Allentown PA last year.  My intent was to carry out the lighter-than-air feeling the artist created and am hoping I succeeded . . . 

 . . . I like to do upbeat encouragement themes and if they have a little humor tossed in, so much the better.  The whole thing shimmers with a hefty spritz of Perfect Pearls mist but as usual, the camera has eaten it.  I’m still hoping that some techie genius can figure out how to get the glitz to come through on photography.  If we can go to the moon, can’t we accomplish this?  And in car commercials, can’t they get the wheels to go in the right direction?  And . . . .
