Magical Hydrangea

Happy Easter! I hope you've not been sick from an over abundance of chocolate and Easter treats this weekend. The Easter bunny will hide chocolate tonight for our kids and tomorrow will be a day of running the kids outside to burn it all off!

I've had a busy week making photo cards. I sat down to do some scrapbooking and when I came to my computer to print out some photos, had this incredible idea. I love to include my photos in every paper craft I make and happened upon these wonderful hydrangea pictures I'd taken last Fall.

Something about them had me looking through hundreds of flower photographs I'd taken last Fall. I changed the hue and saturation on one photo and this is the new style of photo card I came up with. Also, after reading a comment on my blog from Jean over at, I thought these cards would fit in their "New Beginnings in Pastels" challenge.

Each of these cards is 5x7. The sentiment has been stamped in black and then overstamped and embossed in clear. They are blank on the inside.

This is the second version I made with the same Hydrangea photos. They are very simple cards, but for me pack a lot of colour punch. I will have something like this on my etsy shop soon, or you can contact me if you would like to purchase a package of four.
