Ahh, That's Better.........

After ripping out a few times, I'm getting happier with this piece.  I've decided to call it Time for Spring, even though the placement of those little cabs really isn't in a clock formation.   Its what I think of when I work on it, so I'm going with Time for Spring.

I had bought a smoky lavender mat for the shadow box frame, so when I found these bugles in my stash, I was so happy - they match really well.


Click any (or all!) pics to get upclose and personal!
 I added these little buds in the corners. 

Don't know if you noticed or not, but each of the center of the buds matches the color of the center ring of the larger flowers.

And each of the crystal flowers match the stamen color of the cat's eye flowers. 

I'm going to add the same mint/blue stacks around the middle two crystal flowers.  Not sure what I'm going to do after that.

I'm counting on the beads to lead the way......


Don't forget the Beading for a Cure auctions start today!
