Bucket of Beauty

   I have a bucket of long stemmed beauties for you today, the Great Impressions F555 Bucket of Flowers.   Since Roses are red and violets are blue how could I do anything except make my theme red roses.  Can you tell, I like themes for my cards.  If you can't that's OK.  I just figured it out myself.

     I really like how the two frame die cut frames,  both from different companies came together to create the frame I ended up with.  I knew I was going to add the butterflies, I tend to do that a lot as you know.  Butterflies have a special meaning for me so they get included in lots of my cards.  I also knew that I wanted to echo the roses in the bucket on the frames but wasn't sure how, until I remembered a few home made roses that ended up being the exact shade of the roses in the card and the frames, which were matched to the Prisma pencils I wanted to use before I even began.  I like to make sure my images and paper match before I start.  There is nothing worse than creating a beautiful image and then not being able to match it to anything.
