makes you PERFECT
... such a sweet sentiment from the Waffle Flower "Hibiscus" stamp set.
It's funny how cards evolve.
When I first saw this photo inspiration and colour combo fromWaffle Flower, I immediately thought of a pastel rainbow with the "what makes you different makes you perfect" sentiment from the Hibiscus stamp set.
Then I thought, why not an hibiscus garland?
Well I stamped, fussy cut and coloured a bundle of little hibiscus flowers and made them into a garland with twine that had a strand of gold running through it. It looked like a pretty pastel lei but ever so stark against the white background of my card base, so I stepped outside the colour palette and placed it against a sheet of ombre green paper and it look much better, especially with the toucan on the branch in the darkest section. What do you think?
