Well folks, I finally figured out my moss "B." HobLob has this convenient moss in a sheet. Obviously, my dehydrated moss was a little too organic for this project.
(just ignore the photographer here..shoulda taken a pic of it NOT on the mirror)
It is still nice and simple. With my new *really beautiful, incredibly awesome* bookshelves, too much on the mantle just looks messy.
The best part is still the flowers!!! Yay for spring blooms!
P.S. To see my original moss "B" craft fail check this.
