Card #2

I finally am taking the time to post Thank You card #2 of the four that I had to make. I love the Sonoma paper colour combination of green and purple. So pretty!  I am also entering this card in the Heart 2 Heart challenge on stitching.  Thanks for the heads up Melanie!

All the papers, stamps, inks and ribbon are from CTMH.



Lately, I have enjoyed adding stitching to my projects and this card was no exception. I free-handed some swirls using my ruler and piercer and then I used embroidery floss to add the stitches.



Here is a close up. I decided it needed a little bling and so I added a few tiny gems.


The sentiment is from For Every Occasion. I stamped it in 2nd and third generation white and then used Smokey Plum for the main one.



And of course, I had to line the inside to make it seem finished and to cover up the stitching.


I just love this paper pack and how the card turned out. I hope you like it, too!

Check out the great paper pack available as a special promotion for National Scrapbooking month! With a mere order of $35, you can receive this pack of 24 Dotty papers for only $5.00! They are so cute. Watch the video for more information or check out my website. Ordering is super easy!
