I am in love with the recently released Holiday Mix Vintage Buttons, so I decided to use those for all of the "flowers" on my focal panel. I really like the mix of colors. The polka dots from the leaf images were the inspiration for my embossing and background stamping, which I used PolkaDotBasics for. I almost used polka dotted ribbon, but restrained myself. I used Fresh Snow Satin Ribbon to tie the sentiment tag onto the card. I had fun using some of my Nestabilities Dies for the circle image and the sentiment label.
I also added a panel of Friends 'til the End pattern paper to break up all of the polka dots. The finishing touch was a couple of rows of zig-zag stitching.
I don't know where this card is headed, but I had fun simply stamping for fun! I rarely do that these days. I have a long list of Holiday projects that I would like to get done as well as a long list of baby projects as well. I haven't posted anything since last year to my other blog devoted to sewing, but I will be posting every project I get done in the near future. I will leave links here for those who are interested.
I unearthed all of my son's newborn baby clothes from the garage and all of those memories came flooding back. I was so excited to show him all of his precious, tiny clothes, but he could care less. Emma thought it was fun, but her and I were the only ones!
Thanks for fluttering by!
