Technique Tuesday using Sheltering Tree

Technique Tuesday...
I had a great weekend spending some quality time with Marc and my parents!  I had a class on Saturday and I will share pictures of the projects tomorrow!  We went to Tarpon Springs friday night for some yummy greek food and then went to the beach in Clearwater (and got some italian ice).  Wonderful date night!  Yesterday we went to Honeymoon Island, it was beautiful but very overcast and the water was really choppy.  We ended the weekend with a steak, baked potato, peas, carmelized onions and garlic bread.  I have to say, that's one of my favorite meals!
 This card isn't the typical size card - I had to make it bigger to accommodate the larger size oval (in Wisteria Wonder).  I used a Very Vanilla base with coordinating Satin Ribbon.  The polka dot paper comes from the 2013-2015 In-colors paper stack (Pistachio Pudding).  
Do you love the flowers on the tree?  It reminds me of a lilac tree that was outside my window when I was a kid.  I loved cutting the lilacs and putting them in a vase in my bedroom.  Are you wondering how I made the so life-like?  I used something that Stampin' Up! does not sell (this is very rare for me because I love their products!).  It's called "Flower Soft" and it's so easy to use.  You add the special glue and then sprinkle on the flower soft.  I patted it down and dumped off the excess.  Super easy and what a beautiful end result!

See you tomorrow with the projects from my Sale-a-bration Celebration!

Wouldn't it be great if Stampin' Up! offered Flower Soft (or something similar). I haven't used that in years, since I started doing SU, but oh boy, it sure looks beautiful!

Thank you for sharing!
