Think Monday - Think ATC - Mother Nature

I just love spring but I seem to appreciate it all the more living here as the summers are pretty extreme weather-wise. Naturally spring makes me think of flowers (all my beautiful apricot roses are blooming along my front fence) and sunshine (today a lovely 29 Celsius/84 Fahrenheit) so this week's Think Monday Think ATC theme of "Mother Nature" has motivated me to make a trio of rosebud ATCs.

I have used a beautiful napkin (top ply only) which I have crumpled for extra texture and adhered to cardstock using Mod Podge. Once it is dry I have sponged on a little bit of ink to emphasise the texture and then coated the rosebuds with Dimensional Magic. I've added a bit of ribbon and a few buttons and then sewn around the edges. Very simple but I like the uncluttered look on these ones! If the napkin hadn't included any writing on it I would have had to stamp some text or music on it but I decided the hint on the napkin was enough.
