Cutting Cafe's Flower Pot Template!

Good morning and happy Thursday to you! I am doing the "non" rain dance today, hoping that the rain stays away for a bit. My 5th graders are going to a nature center today, where we hike and learn about ecosystems and such. It would make for an unpleasant and very muddy trip if it rains!

For today's card I used the Cutting Cafe's Flower Pot Template and October Afternoon paper. (Thrift Shop line) I did lots of distressing to the edges and added vintage buttons or pearls to the centers of the flowers.


The sentiment is also from the Cutting Cafe'. It was cut out using my oval Nestibility and distressed also. I added some scrunched seam binding that I colored myself and added a pretty stick pin.

I am off to put on my "hiking" gym shoes and grubby clothes! : ) Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Your comments truly brighten my day! (Yes, I am that pathetic! LOL!)
