Heartfelt Thanks


Hi Friends!  I can't believe we're into the second week of June.  Soon, it's time to pack up all my craft supplies for a big move (more about that when time draws near {smiles}).  But, before that, I shall try to make as many cards as I can...

This week's Timeless Tuesday #172, Amanda challenged us to create a White Card with Lace, and/or Pearls.  I can't recall the last time I made a white card.  My card uses the new Flourishes' Hydrangea set.  I love this set, and Hydrangea is mum's favourite flower.  She has a chinese name for them which I can never recall, and one time when we were visiting Tasmania, she made me take so many photos of them.

I used Prismacolor pencils, as I wanted a soft image and it was easier for me to use colour pencils.  I can't ever recall seeing a white hydrangea before and had to google for images to see how they look in real life.  My sister has some hydrangeas in her garden, and she said hydrangea colours are affected by soil acidity.  That is a piece of trivia I never knew!  I apologise for the photo, I just couldn't catch the light for a better shot.


I'm also submitting this card to the Simon Says Challenge - Show Some Texture.
Thank you for visiting me today.

Hope your day is lovely.
Kary
