Basically Moving Forward

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is going great! My friends and I had a great time yesterday at the quilt show! It wasn't huge but there were some awesome quilts displayed! Wow!!! There are some very talented people out there! The person we went up there to see had an awesome booth, too! She was debuting her new patterns there! I didn't buy any right now as I have quite a few projects I can be working on, but I am looking forward to getting some of her patterns! They are really nice!!! Lunch and a few shops later we came home and called it a day! Very fun!!

Today's card was one that I did for a recent swap I participated in. The color scheme came straight from the Color Coach. I ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Chevron embossing folder and adhered it to a card base of Whisper White. Then I added a piece of Basic Grey. I tied a piece of Basic Grey stitched grosgrain ribbon around a piece of Summer Starfruit and adhered that to the card. The scallop circle is cut from Primrose Petals using the Perfect Pennants die. I punched a 2 1/2" circle from Whisper White and stamped the bike image from Moving Forward in Basic Grey. The flowers are stamped in Primrose Petals and then I stamped the basket part again and cut it out to adhere it over the first stamped one. I punched a flower from Summer Starfruit with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and adhered it to the bike tire with a mini brad. This circle is adhered to the scallop circle and then popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
