Do you have a flower wall?  I've seen them on some of my favorite HGTV DYI shows, but I have never tried to make one.  

This is the time of year when I start looking forward to filling my outdoor flowerpots with flowers.  I know that by the middle of July I'll be sick of watering them, but as with many things, dreaming and planning is more exciting than maintaining!  Sort of like making the cards to share is more fun than writing the blogs.

Today's card is the flower wall I dream of.  The Night of Navy pots are safely hanging on a trellis mounted to a rustic fence.  There is no concern about the pots crashing down if there is a strong wind or the flowers wilting because I forgot to water them.  These may just be my favorite kinds of flowers!

I have a couple of pots of daisies in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight and another pot of Merry Merlot Tulips.  The Brushed Brass Butterflies are flitting around, and all are ready for a Happy Easter.

My rustic fence is made with In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Sadly, this beautiful Paper is retiring, but the good news is that it is now available on the Last Chance List for 40% off.  I have used this DSP Collection for so many cards.  It is very versatile and also works wonderfully for masculine cards!

The inside of the card and the front of the envelope each have another pot of daisies.  These were made using the Masking Technique.  Just stamp the flowers first and then create a mask of the lower portion of the flowers by stamping them on a Post-it Note and cutting around the flowers on the bottom of the bouquet.  Place the mask over the flowers and stamp the flowerpot.  It looks just like the flowers are spilling over the pot, doesn't it?  That's how I hope my flowers will look in a couple of months!
