Love of Nature

Our hostess for the next Sisterhood of Crafter's challenge is Agata. She has chosen "Close to Nature" as her theme. My husband and I have always loved to take walks through the woods. My mother-in-law's house was on an acre and a half with a river running through it. It was so relaxing walking the trails and seeing the changes of the seasons. Since my mother-in-law has moved to Virginia with her daughter and son-in-law, we don't get a chance to take walks through the woods now.

For my project, I chose this beautiful picture found on Pinterest. I love all the bright colors of the flowers and leaves. 

The background paper is by Provo Craft. The mat and picture were cut with my Nestibilities dies and Cut 'n Boss cutting machine. The stem was cut with a Memory Box die from bright green card stock. I found the sentiment on Pinterest and typed it onto white card stock then cut it out and matted it with black card stock. Next I added the purple and yellow ribbon flowers and green paper flowers.  Last I wrapped black grosgrain ribbon around the front of the card and tied it in a knot.

Wouldn't this be a lovely spot to sit quietly and gather your thoughts? It looks so calm and serene.

Now, why not stop by the Sisterhood and enter your creation? You have until 8pm (est), Sunday, August 21st to enter.
