This card was made for a challenge at The Ribbon Carousel to use paper piecing and, of course, some ribbon, lace, twine or most anything that comes on a spool. All of my vases are paper pieced with paper from a pack by Pressed Petals, Baby Boy. The flowers are stamped onto the ivory card stock. Vases and flowers are from a set by Papertrey Ink, Gracious Vases. The shelf is a stamp from a Gina K. Designs set, Nana's Needlework. The ribbon is from Michaels and was a absolutely perfect match for the patterned papers -- almost like they came together as a kit.
We visited with our friends yesterday afternoon who gifted us with that beautifully carved gourd. We saw so many lovely, fascinating pieces that he has carved, both from wood and gourds. I'm going to post a link where you can see all the pictures I took yesterday afternoon but I'll give you a sneak peek so that you'll know it will be worth your time to look at all the pictures!
The gourds still in their natural state.
This is Herschel, in his workshop, with the gourd he's working on now.

Here's the link to a Picasa Web Album (crossing my fingers that it works!)
