Skipping Stones Inspiration Challenge!

Just having some fun tonight with a challenge at

I couldn't resist when I saw this photo...
Then the reality came to me that I have only the "girlfriend" themed SSD stamps
and really have no flowery ones!
My creativity went into overdrive (or was it the Ambien?) LOL!
I decided that one of the purses from "Birthday Purses" looked a lot like a flower pot.
Hey, it does if you squint..
So, this is what inspired me to make this little "Thank You" note card.
A bit of elegance, with a touch of whimsy.

The sentiment is also from that same set, "Birthday Purses". 
The background is stamped and silver heat embossed with an OLD stamp I have from Cornish Heritage Farms onto silver/gray Bazzil cardstock.
I figure if originality counts, I should get credit for this one!

That certainly IS an original use of birthday purses Jan! I like that embossed background too!

Really clever use of the purse as a flower pot! Thanks for playing along this week with Skipping Stones Design.

I think this turned out wonderfully. That is what stamping is all about...utilizing what you have in a unique and creative way. Well done with this little beauty.
