Believe

Today is my day to share something on the Some Odd Girl Blog and I'm bringing you a little bit of inspiration using one of the Nouveau Girls Believe!  I don't use flowers very often but I was inspired after organizing my craft room to use of a few of the bundles I have... after all, they were over flowing the draw just screaming to be used!  LOL  Plus I wanted to try grouping my flowers off to the corner like so many gorgeous projects I've seen lately.


So I grabbed some of my gray and white flowers, papers, ribbons and embellishments then decided to pair them up with a Nouveau Girl which I knew would be perfect in a black and white dress - I particularly liked Believe as she looked like she was reflecting upon time so I threw in some time elements too.


I don't know about you but I always have a few scattered pieces of extras laying on my desk!  Sometime they're a bit too messy and need organizing themselves but I tend to grab things from that "pile" and add them to my card... this one was no exception and that's where I found the clouds and green leaves!  Other than the leaves and some coloring I kept everything else in the monochromatic scheme.  Here's a closer photo of Believe and her dreamy face...


The flower grouping went well, I think, but I wish I had some sort of wispy element coming out of them... maybe pearls or something else sticking out in different directions.  Anyway, that's my next excuse for shopping!  He he he!  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you've enjoyed my project and have been inspired today!
