Purple Hydrangeas

Oh, you've caught me, still digging in my photo archives for things I never shared here before.


Like many of you, I have a hard time throwing out little things that I think will be useful in my crafts. Well, these purple silk hydrangea blossoms fell off a flower arrangement I used to have, so I saved them.  I love how they dress up the card, especially when paired with an abundance of purple rhinestone gems and a couple of little leaves.

This is intended as a bridal shower card, and is in a shop (or hopefully, it's sold by now), but with that general sentiment, it could be for any number of occasions.
