Look Ma, No Stitching!

Hello! This was my first attempt at a rolled flower die from My Favorite Things. I used the Sno Cone Blue Felt from My Favorite Things and although it's not "perfect", it resembles a rose well enough, lol. I was out of my comfort zone with this card as I did not do any machine stitching. I kept feeling like the card wasn't finished without the machine stitching...nevertheless, I restrained myself for the discipline of not getting into a rut. Still, I missed the sewing on the card part...

Not much involved in this other than die cutting and paper punching. The upper right blue flower was cut from a coordinating piece of Pebble's "Family Ties" DP. The small yellow flowers were punched and popped up as was the bird and medium blue flower. Pictured below, is a close-up of the flowers, leaves, etc.

The card interior sentiment was computer-generated, written by yours truly. Matching papers and flowers were added to coordinate with the card front.

Okay, Here's the Deets:

Linda, all your cards are a work of art!! I love the bright colors, the mix of dies and punched flowers, and the scripture, of course!! I am going to try your signature style just once; as I love the fact that you utilize so much designer paper and I always have so much left over. This is bound to cheer someone up!!
