What a wonderful color combination for today's CC over on SCS. It was one of those, "I know exactly what I want to do and use" moments! I even have two different fonts of the quote I chose. (bad, I know!!!). I decided to go simple (B LINE Designs) and let the beautiful K&CO Margo paper carry the show. A lush, vintage velvet brings the texture.
In thinking on MY own rose bushes that missed their Presidents' day trimming...I've got 27 different varieties...I can't help but remember a speech on the history of roses I did for a college class. I had brought in a huge bouquet of various colors to use as a visual during the final speech. I just knew I had every one's attention as I spoke of the history of the rose in popular lore and more current cultivation techniques. At the end, I gave each person a rose. There was one person left to speak and I knew, just knew I had carried the day..that is until the last speaker revealed he had also brought in a prop to compliment his speech. A boa constrictor...needless to say, he stole the show!
I'm yearning for the heavenly smell in my garden...as much as I love my paper and stamps, nothing beats the real thing! What about you??? How do you reconcile time in the garden?
