altered greeting card

This flowered card arrived recently with a Paper Whimsy (PW) order.

A lovely thank you that I’m sure everyone gets with their order; a very nice touch, don’t you think. I admired it for awhile and then had the idea of using a craft knife to cut around a few of the flowers. I made a little place to add a PW girl behind the flowers.

I gave her a set of wings, another girl’s hair bow and a little curlique snippet from a PW collage sheet, along with one of the lovely flowers that PW sells………waste not want not as my Mother always says!

Oh, I also put a puff dot behind her head so she’s dimensional looking in person.

“Waste not fresh tears over old griefs.” ~Euripides
