Card in a potted flower

I wanted to give these flowers to a special loved on in recognition of the anniversary of a loved ones death. Hyacinths are such an indication of spring for me. Simply the smell of them is like God whispering in my ear, "spring is coming. I promise."

Rather than creating a separate card to go with the flowers, I created a card that would actually stick in the plant. I used the Wild Card cart to create the flowers, and used a button with some raffia for an added element. I used adhesive to adhere toothpicks to the back of the card as a way to stick it in the dirt, covering up the toothpicks with an additional sheet of paper.
