Potted Flowers

Good morning.  Well this week has been back to winter!  Cold, wet, windy and even some hailstones!  Cold enough that we lit the woodburner - in June .......!!  According to the forecast (oh yeah!) it's supposed to be better today. So fingers crossesd because we are hoping to have a day out today. Certainly yesterday was a vast improvement, but still not June weather!

I have seen quite a few of these plant pots around blogland so I decided to make one too.

My Card

Brown card - Bazzill Basics
Cream card - scraps from my box
Pink patterned card stock - First Edition "Love Letters
Damask embossing folder - Couture Creations
Flowers - Spellbinders Rose Creations die
Argyle embossing folder - Embossalicious from Crafter's Companions
Spellbinders - Classic scalloped ovals
Sentiment on insert - Freebie from TLC Creations
Lace and gems from stash

I added a cardstock stand to the back of the plant pot so that it would stand upright.  I thought it would make a nice get well card but decided to type "Just For You" on the label then it can be used for something else if necessary.

This fits nicely into a 5" x 7" envelope but obviously it could be made smaller or larger. I shall be making some more and try different sizes to see which I prefer.

Well I hope everybody is okay, but hugs to those who need them.
