Mary Mary quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockle shells. And pretty maids all in a row.
Such a lovely little rhyme I was humming in my head when creating this card, all these pretty felt flowers lined up in a row. Upon finding the correct verbiage for the poem, I ran into the historical origins. I don't care to find out the true meaning of a nursery rhyme again anytime soon. Oh dear, how complicated. I think I shall just remember the poem as I did when I was little, so much more fun that way.
These felt flowers fell from their container and were a perfect match to jump start a card for The Curtain Call Color Challenge. Along with the pink flowers, I added a celery green ribbon leaf and rose stitching to hold them in place, as I've seen some talented designers do with other shapes. I'm happy that I kept this card clean and simple instead of complicated, I think it's so much more fun that way.
