Last month I was desperately seeking some decision making help. I sent out a plea to my many Yahoo stamping groups for advice and I am just now posting the winner. PRIMA FLOWERS!!
I was commissioned to make some party favors for a father/daughter dance at a local church. When I first started working on these Pillow Box party favors I had originally used an all lavender flower with my Stampin' Up! punches, then I remembered that I had some Prima flowers amongst my embarrassingly large inventory of crafting goodies. I showed my ladies that organized the dance and to my chagrin they let me make the decision as to the Primas or keep it monochromatic.....if they only new how hard it was (and still is) to make such decisions! I put out a plea with my fellow crafters/stampers and it was a fairly close race, but the Primas won out. When I originally posted my samples, the Prima flowers were much brighter, enough so, that is what was making my decision so difficult. After a tad more rummaging I found some subtle pastel Primas and they hit the spot as they perfectly matched the silk flower centerpieces on the tables. I attached a bookmark stamped with the Very Vintage wheel and placed it behind the Pillow Box with a belly band holding it together. I always like to make a little keepsake that the girls can have to remember their special night with their fathers.
If any of my Yahoo group friends visit this blog posting, thank you so much for your input, you are so appreciated!
