Don't you just love this hydrangea?  I adore it!  I had a ton of fun water coloring it with several pinks and then some light brown tones.  I added liquid pearls to the flower centers and some gold washi tape as border for my pink polka dot paper.  I think this hydrangea makes a super elegant card.  It reminds me of my paternal grandmother, who was also a very elegant woman.  My mother tells me that my grandmother always looked as if she had stepped right off the pages of a fashion magazine.  Like my mother, I am more practical than that.  However, my little girl appears quite trendy.  Time will tell, I suppose.

Thanks for stopping by and come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
