Always On My Mind

"Maybe I didn't love you, Quite as often as I could have, And Maybe I didn't treat you, Quite as good as I should have, If I made you feel second best, Girl I'm sorry I was blind.
You were always on my mind, You were always on my mind..." ~Willie Nelson

Good ol' Willie came to mind when I saw this older sentiment and I knew I had to make a soft card to go along with it. I was humming this song the entire time putting this together too! I played along with the Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party: Watercolor.

I started by loosely watercoloring a background panel with a bit of blue and bit of green paint. I then stamped, watercolored and fussy cut the beautiful lillies and a few leaves from Craftin Desert Diva's Botanical Layers Stamp Set. Before adhering them to the card, I drew some "stem" lines, just go ground the images, and well, I'm used to doing this! I finished the card with a stamped sentiment and banner die cut from Lil' Inker Designs.

These types of flowers are among my favorites and I am doing my best to keep the plants alive year after year. I wish every year that the blooms would last longer than they do!
