TLC280 - Thanks

Hello! Been busy here in Winchester. LOL! I made this card 2 days ago and have not found the time to post about it but here I go.

Here is a sketch from CPS-Card Sketches. I also participated in Try a new technique over at Splitcoaststampers. It was called Paper Posies. My understanding was to use something other than a pre-made flower. So I made my own flower, a little fabric, hot glue and a brad to top and voila.......

The pattern paper is from Pebbles Inc, Twitterpated collection. I added the glitter to the paper. I felt it matched the fabric flower a bit because it also had a bit of glitter on it. I used my handy dandy sewing machine to put some stitches around the edge, used a sentiment stamp from Basic Grey's Green at Heart collection, Tree Hugger stamp set. It is actually supposed to say "Thanks for everything you do" but I cut/separated the stamp. I like the script on the "thanks" and I use it a lot so I cut the other part off.
The picture turned out brighter than I originally thought it would be so you can't really tell the color of the card base but it is from SU called Brushed Silver. It's like a metalic-y grey color. Pretty cool.


Stamp: Tree Hugger (Basic Grey - Green at Heart collection)

Paper: Twitterpated (Pebbles Inc), Brushed Silver (SU)

Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)

Misc: hand made fabric flower

Happy Crafting!!
