Snow Flower

I have been challenged by Christina and Danielle to make a frame card.   I also joined the book club at Color Me Creative Classroom and right now we are reading SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN by Lisa See.  So I made a frame card featuring what I believe a snow flower might look like.

Hopefully you can see that this delicate wax paper flower has dimension.

As often happens, the card really looks much better than the picture.  All I can tell you is, my Mom said it looks very elegant and she should know.  After all she is my Mom and don't mothers know everything!

Please visit my talented friends as they participate in the Inventory Challenge # 44.

Thanks so much for visiting me this week.  As you  know,  I do appreciate your comments.
