Pink Hydrangeas

I thought I would try something a little different today....
I cut a tiny styrofoam ball in half to make the mop heads on my Hydrangeas
I glued each little flower to the styrofoam half
I cut my flowers with the Cheery Lynn Design Embellishments 3
and inked them with SU Melon Mambo and TH Worn Lipstick
the stems were cut with  Build A Flower Embellishments 2
and the leaves with Build A Flower 2
The little sentiment I hadn't intended to add, but I had placed
my flowers too high up on the card and it was a "save"
I had planned to add one of my new little Hummingbird die cuts...
I am entering this in the challenge this week just for fun
at the Cheery Lynn Design Challange Blog "Tickled Pink"
and also at
 "The Cheerful Stamp Pad "Tickled Pink"
Here are a couple pictures of my Garden from last year... of course

it's snowing like crazy out right now!!

OMG I don't know which is more beautiful! Your card or your real flowers! Just GORGEOUS girl! You must truly have a green thumb and inky fingers! YOU GO GIRL!
And, what a fabulous idea to use the Styrofoam ... clever & very creative!
Try to stay warm ... spring is coming (sooner or later ... looks like it might be later! lol)

Love your idea for the mopheads! What a pretty card! Your real hydrangeas are absolutely gorgeous, too! My white hydrangea is a fairly new addition to the garden but I can see it will be one of my favorites.
