WOW Carol. You have been busy creating such works of art. I love that beaded effect on the flowers. Those diamond pearls work great. The colors all work great together. You have to let us all know how you did that. I've only done beads with sticky tape? =^..^=

Wow Carol, such a stunning card, love the beadwork on the sunflowers and the faces on them are adorable.
Thank you for sharing. Debbie T:)

What an awesome beauty, Carol!! I love the huge sunflowers framing your seed packet and your micro bead petals!! Such a gorgeous card!!

Benzi said...

Those sunflowers are just awesome. You really know how to make those faces pop. I've had better days than when I've used micro beads..if you know what I mean. They kind of got out of my control a time or two. Ha I love them and how you used them is such a great addition. Beautiful work, Carol.

This is stunning, Carol!! You really went all out decorating that sweet seed packet. My favorite part? The eyeshadow on those two cute little sunflower faces!!!

Cheryl Walker said...

OMgosh this is tooo SWEET!!! I love your card :) Love the glitz on the sunflowers, they are way tooo cute!! Another beauty hun!!!

Ooo as for the sewing in home ec my daughter and son both took it in the past, but it could be the school, so you havent been under any rocks lately...hehehehehehehehe :) OMgosh I just had to say that...LOL My youngest took sewing last year and loved it. So im thinking it might just be the schools out there, its hard to say, but yeah sewing class has been around for YEARS, I hope they dont do away with it, that would be sad.

You will have to post the purses they make on your blog, I would love to see them :) I bet they turn out cute!!! :)

Hope you have a lovely day :)

What a darling idea to use the sunflower pieces behind the stamped seed packet! And the glimmer on the sunflowers (stamped) is just beautiful. :)

Karen said...

Oh my goodness, how magnificent! I love the micro beads on the flowers.

What a great idea using the micro beads, I think they add a nice sparkle and dimension to the card!
