Die Cute Dreams and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge

Good afternoon everyone!  I spent the afternoon doing what I love... Making a card!  I just adore these handmade flowers made from pages of old novels.  They just have such a shabby vintage feel, I can't get enough!  Die Cut Dreams challenge this week was to use a sentiment but no stamped image.  I thought it would be a perfect way to showcase this beautiful flower!  Also I stumbled upon a new challenge this week called Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge or (FTTC68) for short.  Their challenge this week was to make your own flower.  That has to be one of my most favorite things to do in my craft room!  I have made so many different types, I don't know which is my favorite???  Anyway, I love how this card turned out and yesterday I bought a new item at Michaels to display my cards on when I am taking pictures of them.  My card above is sitting on it and can you guess what it is?  I saw it on a blog that I frequent and when I e-mailed the lovely blog owner Mona Pendleton, she promptly e-mailed me back with the answer.  Wasn't that sweet!  She has a beautiful blog with some lovely cards and you can find it here.  It's called Cupcake Creations, isn't that cute???   Anyway, did you guess??  It's actually a candle topper and Michaels had them in a few different colors in the candle aisle.  How clever is that?  Anyway, I think it showcases the card nicely, don't you?  It's amazing what you'll find in the blogosphere!  New ideas and some very kind people!  Thanks Mona!
Have a wonderful day everyone!  I already am!
