Winter Pansies

A while back I won a contest for a $100 gift certificate for Clear Art Stamps. This was one of the sets that I got and I LOVE this set! It reminds me of my sweet little mommy! SHE LOVES pansies and little girls!(must be why she had 4 of us... maybe the 2 boys were for Daddy?)Oh and one thing that i found crazy... in the South... the pansies are planted for the winter and removed in the spring and other flowers are planted. In Buffalo, pansies are the SUMMER flowers and NOTHING grows in the winter!(LOL) ANYWAY... I used black detail embossing powder and watercolors on watercolor paper to create my little flower girl. I used nesties to cut the shapes and added the details to spruce it up! I love the way this turned out and the crushed velvet ribbon adds so much texture to this! I hope you enjoyed this card and have a Happy St. Pat's day!
