Embellish Paper Piercing Challenge

What a beautiful day it was here in Chicago - 70's and sunny! I wish that this was what our winters were like! :)

This card was created based off of Embellish Magazines Paper Piercing Colors Challenge and for inspiration not only wonderful work by the DT, but beautiful photo's taken at CHA. I love that linen dress! :)

Cardstock, button and twine are from PTI, ribbon from Offray, color from Copics, misc. paper doily and pearl adhesives. The rubberstamped seed packet.....unfortunately, I threw the packaging away and I can't remember who I purchased these from.

I had this rubberstamp for sometime and have yet to use it. So, I decided to blow off the dust and give it a go. I "ghost stitched" the Kraft cardstock giving the card a framed look and used a scalloped stitch on the yellow polka dot paper. Once my papers were stitched, down went the paper doily, then my stamped seed pack image, ribbon and last but not least....button and twine.

Off to post my card - have a wonderful evening! Cathy xx :)
