The flower on this first card is heather. The purple on its stems is so rich and colourful, perfect for lifting our spirits in the depth of winter. I used a beautiful handmade paper with thin strands of silver embedded into the pulp. Its torn edges helps to give it a romantic feel. I only have a tad left but as soon as the weather warms, I am on my way to Paper Source to buy more. I was thrilled to see a new store opened here in the Chicago suburbs. I chose to use the "journey" stamp on this piece because this winters' class has been a wonderful journey for me.
