FMS 78

Good morning, Friends! I thought that spring was here! What happened? Oh my goodness it is SO cold right now! And there's talk of snow? Ugh! Spring break has officially begun but it doesn't feel like it. I hope that it will warm up next week. And my flowers were starting to peek up out of the ground! I will be staying warm today, though. I am excited to be going to an all day stitching! Today is Breakfast Club at Laura's Home and that means a great day to work on stitching! She is also having her open house today! Can't wait to see all the wonderful things she will be offering this quarter!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. A wonderful simple sketch! A piece of Tea for Two designer paper was punched with the scallop trim punch and adhered to a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I took another piece of Very Vanilla and punched the flower using the Blossom punch. I sponged the edges of the flower using Calypso Coral ink and then stamped the sentiment from Friendly Phrases in Early Espresso. I tied a piece of Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon around this and popped the panel up onto the card base. I like to make sure that I get plenty of dimensionals right around the flower so that it really stays popped up. Then I took some linen thread and a vintage faceted button and created loops using glue dots to help hold everything in place. This is adhered to the flower center. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
