My Yukka and a Card

Good morning, i wandered outside this morning and to my amazment i found my Yukka had THREE flower stems, i bought the thing 12 years ago, it flowered in the first two years then nothing for five years, when a single one popped up, you cant belive how exited i was to see it sitting there waiting to flower, and then ..... my daughter who was 5 at the time knocked its head off playing, i could have cried :( and nothing since until this year and now i have THREE THREE i am sooo excited again i have everything crossed that they make it this time around lol, but i will keep you informed so keep your fingers crossed for me :)


Ok on to the card lol another one for my freind this is for her parents anniversary, and the theme set was floral, i found this beautiful image in my scrapbooking stash and just had to go with it, i chalked the background to make it less white, picked out some of the colours in the flowers and made some papers to suit, i mpounted the image on silver glitter card alongside the sentiment and added three white glass flowers from my stash.


Then i made two inserts for the inside again using the image.



I have entered this into the foillowing Challenges
