What A Beautiful Day!

Happy Saturday, my friends!
I found some time today to make a little card! It's got a kraft card base, and then a layer of red cardstock. I punched the corners only of a square of decorative paper. I punched out some flowers, pierced around their edges, and then stitched them by hand using floss that matched the decorative paper. Punched some small flower centers out of some of the coordinating papers and added them with some pearl brads. I added a ribbon and a sentiment, and my card was finished! I also did the shortest post EVER! lol I hope you're all having a beautiful day! :o)


Materials Used:

Papers: Recollections - Cardstock,
K & Company - Olive Tree Specialty Pad;
Punches: Stampin' Up - Punch Blossom, Oval,
and Boho Blossoms;
Brads: My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found 2 - Rosy;
Ink: DI- Walnut Stain, CTMH - Cranberry;
Stamp: Simon Says Stamp- Music 2 My Ears;
Embroidery Floss: DMC;
Ribbon: Details & Accessories.
