The Grass withers & the flowers fall.....

this week at Wednesday Stamper, the theme is Flowers
here is my card, I have a vintage newspaper, and I scanned the words, and taped my white card to an A4 sheet of paper and printed the card with the newspaper, so the print goes over the back of the card too... I really like that idea...
the verse I've used is from Isaiah 40:7 I do love this verse, and thought it fitted perfectly with this weeks challenge...
Flowery bits I've used for my card are - Hero Arts Real High Country Wildflowers Stamps, Acme Label maker, the crown was a circle metal frame(given to me recently by a special friend) that I cut in half and painted to make the crown, Maria George crystal, black versa ink, embossing powder and my sewing machine,
Here's the paper if you want to save it and use it sometime...
this is just one page from my newspaper from 1899
I'll post some more sometime soon..
