Today's card was made simple!  I used to have them in my yard when I lived up north. They were beautiful as long as it didn't get cold. Then they turned into brown spears! I got hurt on a bush when I slipped on my frozen sidewalk a few years ago. I had to go to the hospital. The ER nurse asked what happened and I told her I was attacked by my hydrangea. She whispered to another nurse that I needed a psych evail! 

I love these flowers, even though they can be weapons!heehee


Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.

What a delightful card for someone! I love how you did the background piece behind the Hydrangea to make the flower really stand out on your card! Your card would cheer anyone up!

I think as paper crafters we need a psych eval just because that is how we roll. I am so sorry that you were attacked by your hydrangea. This one on your card looks really pretty.

Attack of the Killer Hydrangeas....coming to a winter near you! Eeeek. Had no idea! I can't even keep them alive here in Idaho. Perhaps it's a good thing!!!
