Green Hydrangeas

I wanted to do a little stamping, so I used the lovely Hydrangea Bouquet set from Raisin Boat.
The image is made of 4 stamps (3 from the set & a Hero Arts sentiment), but I did it 5 steps. The flower bunch and leaf is one piece, so I stamped & embossed in the leaf, cleaned the stamp, and embossed the bunch in a lighter green. The stems are in the same Stampendous Glitter Jade as the leaf, and the vase & sentiment are in a pretty Recollections red.
I was inspired by the sketch at CardPatterns and the red, cream and sage green color color at Colour Create. I sewed on the buttons onto a stack of lace, some leftover Christmas present ribbon, & a pattern ribbon.
I drew on the border with an Elmer's gel pen, and used a flower stamp from the Raisin Boat set to decorate the inside.

Happy Day everyone!
