About two weeks ago I was shopping for some flowers to plant in a new flower bed my husband built for me.  While I looked around I saw a table full of beautiful little Moss Roses and the colors were Bright Pink, Light Pink, Yellow and Orange.  They were just so pretty the way the colors were mixed on the table.  

I had this stamp at home and just knew what I was going to do with it.  (The stamp is from Gina K).  

Well, I didn't buy the Moss Roses because the lady helping me actually guided me to some Rose Bushes because I was actually wanting to plant something in that bed that would continue to come up each year.  I bought two bushes and was so pleased with what I found.  The best plans don't always work out.  The holes had to be dug quite deep and wide and we ran into a drain pipe that runs along side of the foundation of our house that was in the way of getting the bushes planted.

Fortunately the garden center let me return the bushes since they were still in their original pots and I picked out some annuals to put in the bed least for this year.   And guess what part of the flowers I bought................YES, I bought some of those pretty Moss Roses but only in the Bright Pink and Yellow to go along with some other taller flowers in the same bed.  So the flowers that inspired my card also ended up in my flower bed.

Thanks for stopping by!  What inspires you when you make cards?

I planted a lot of moss rose this year. I love it! One day I saw a little girl at school with the prettiest head band. I wrote down all of the colors in it and made a card using them. I don't know if you remember the card I made with the little girl pulling the wagon with flowers in it. That was the card. Still love those colors.

Usually inspiration comes from a piece of material I've seen. I am not a sewer but the beautiful patterns and colors are so pretty, you can't help but be inspired!
