Good morning, friends, and happy Labor Day if you're in the US.
My grandmother always grew red geraniums in her breezeway. It was a room filled with windows on both the front and back, so it got lots of sunlight. I remember a feeling of warmth washing over me whenever I stepped through the door into her home.
I believe my love for gardening came from her, as I have so many fond memories of her tending to her flower gardens outside in the summertime and caring for her geraniums all throughout the long, cold Maine winters.
Every summer, I add geraniums to my list of potted plants to put on the patio or in various containers around our yard, but I like to mix up the colors. The salmon-colored geraniums are among my favorites.
I used Poppystamps Brilliant Geraniums for today's cards. I cut so many that I was able to make two cards.
I added a bit of glitter to the edges of the flowers to make them sparkle and shine. The Poe Script Happy Birthday die cut sentiment is also from Poppystamps. I cut it twice out of black cardstock and a matte finish gold cardstock and layered them offset so the black gave the illusion of a shadow.
I'll be entering one of these cards into the Poppystamps Anything Goes challenge
and the Flower Challenge, since I added some sparkle to the flowers.
I'll also enter one card into the Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes challenge.
Here's a list of links to the products I used today:
