 Not everyone has a crystal vase waiting for flowers to fill it. Often, we have to grab whatever container is nearby. This is usually a pitcher of some sort. What do you think?

   4 Eyelets

First, I stamped my pitcher and flowers. I then colored in the image using various markers. I listed them above.

I then decided to mask the image and stamp the background, using the square tile stamp. Once I realized the mess I made, I die cut the image out using an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I adhered it onto a panel of DSP. I added an eyelet to each corner and ran some baker's twine through them. 

I adhered some DSP to the card base and added this smaller panel using dimensionals. 

I do my best to salvage and use everything I can. Of course, it is not always possible, and believe me I have thrown some horrendous mistakes in the trash bin. Still, I think I was able to salvage this one. What do you think? Would you throw up if you got this in the mail?
