This card is for today's SCS Free For All(F4A14)! Inspired by a Collection! Aside from collecting craft stuff, I collect ornaments. I love glass ornaments the best. I love intricate designs,whimsical, and floral. My dh usually brings me an ornament home from his worldly travels.  I like that the pieces I collect tell a story, too.   Why I got it or who gave it to me and why.  This card makes me think of a clear glass bulb with a beautiful flower hand painted or etched on the outside. Love that!

Try as I might I wanted this card to work for this week's SCS sketch challenge, but my flower was so big and the horizontal band covered most of it up...gasp! I opted not to go there. LOL! Boo Hoo! However, I ended up with a funky layout, though. Oh, well!

How do you make white flowers white?  You paint the shadows only!  LOL!  Duh!  I just love this lily of the valley image from PTI.  I also purchased my first impressions plate this time.  LOVE it!  This texture is the perfect texture cardstock look!  I am really "impressed" with these impression plates!
