Stamp Simply #90 - Gone To Pot

Friday is here and it's time for another fun-filled challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog (NoTimeToStamp). Today Sharon's challenge has "Gone To Pot" ... here it is in Sharon's words:

GONE TO POT! — Today’s challenge is somewhat of a play on words — I have always loved word games. Today we will incorporate some kind of a POT into our work — be creative! This idea came to me while I was planting some flowers into a “flower pot”, drinking coffee that had been brewed in a *coffee pot* — you get the idea. Let’s see how many *pots* we can come up with today — be creative and have fun!!!

Recently I purchased this awesome "pot" by Michael Strong. It's called "Cloisonne Pot" and I thought it would work perfectly for this challenge. What do you think???

I was trying out a couple new ideas and I'm not sure if I like how it turned out or not. Must practice more when I get the chance. This was a quick card ... I can hear that MOUNTAIN OF MULCH calling out to me to get out there and "get 'r done". It's taking me forever but I will get it done eventually!!! Anyways ... back to the card. My base card is Soft Sky which I stamped the image using Versafine Black and embossed with silver pearls. Then I ran my card through the Cuttlebug using the swiss dot folder and sponged over the dots around the outside of the vase ... ooops I mean pot. Then I dumped out my container of white & purple Prima flowers and started making my arrangement using glue dots to adhere them. The centers are Stampendous Diamond Dots and the gingham ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

Well, there you have it ... now it's time to get outside. It's a beautiful day and I really must get out there and get started on my weeding and mulching. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!!
