I decided to photograph a new flower in my own backyard in Lewes, Delaware, USA. I have a small manmade pond in my backyard with some goldfish. Our first water lily is in bloom and it looks very pretty floating in the crystal clear water.

Next, flowers inspired me to made a cheerful floral birthday card with the words "Just for You" on the front. A trio of birds are layered on the floral paper. I decided to add it to green and orange card stock. Happy Birthday is hand stamped on the inside of the flowers with birds birthday card. There is plenty of room on the inside for you to add your own special words.
My floral bracelet features a pale green leather and aqua blue ceramic with "Make Wishes" on one side and a dandelion on the other. This flower bracelet also has the word bead "Kindness" and it is adjustable. It fits a 7 to 8 inch wrist. Size adjustments can be made easily by adjusting the amount of leather that you pass through the floral. The ceramic word beads are by Scottish artisan Grubbi.
