enjoy today..

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a little card I made late on Sunday night.  The last few days have been busy with parties for my little guy, Gabriel, who turned 9 this past Sunday (June 14th).  We wrapped up the weekend with dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Jimmy Macs.  When we got home I decided to unwind from all the activity by make a card using the June Viva La Verve week 2 sketch.   I used some lovely papers from the My Mind's Eye On Trend.  I love the beautiful soft colors and touches of gold in this set of papers.  I paired them up with the delicate bluebells image from the Verve set Framed Florals.  The label image and sentiment are from the Verve set Small Packages.  Both the frame and the bluebells were die cut with their companion dies. I used some PTI Ocean Tides ink to stamp the labels image, as well as the outline image for the bluebells.  The solid portion of the bluebells was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Pale Blush Pink.  I added some stitching down the side using one of the PTI stitching lines die and gold metallic thread.  In order to make sure that the doily didn't shift while I was adding the stitching with the die I did tack the doily down with a little bit of adhesive.  After I had finished stamping everything I decided to add some overstamping using Delicate Golden Glitz ink... love the subtle gold sparkle it added.  Verve is having a release this month... can't wait to see what lovely stamps they have in store for us!!   Going to post this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge... I think this would be a great card to send to a friend!

Fab card Rosie, love the layout and the soft colour palette. The stitching with the metallic thread is lovely. Apologies for my lack of commenting lately it's been busy and we are now having two very hot lazy weeks in Crete!

Hello Rosie,
This is a card that would appeal to many, the muted palette is warm and friendly, adding the stitching creates not only interest but texture and the onlooker will instantly want to touch it. Adding a tactile element is always a plus in my book.
