A little more Morning Glory

I had another go with the pretty Morning Glory stamp set. On a recent walk in Collingwood, I got to stop and look at some real morning glory. I had it all wrong! The leaves crowd each other for the sun, forming a solid mat of leaves - then the flowers poke up above them.

So I stamped a heap more leaves, and raised the flowers up with foam tape.

Here's a photo of real Morning Glory. See? And I think I need bluer purples - but at the moment I've been using Lavender Lace and Rich Razzleberry as my two purple shades.

I sent this birthday card off to my Mum - no danger of spoiling the surprise, I doubt she's on line quite yet. But I did include some information about the U3A where she lives ... I'm hoping she has a go at a computer class!
