Stitched Petals

Hi! This will be my last card post for awhile. My family and I are making our annual trek south to Florida tomorrow! I'm really excited about it. The packing process is exhausting though. Usually, I don't mind... and look forward to the weeks of planning and anticipation. This year, I just want to be there. I guess it doesn't help that I have to travel to Europe for work the week I return. I'm tired thinking of it.



But, I made a couple of cards when I should have been packing yesterday. This card was really fun, using the new Pick A Petal stamp set by SU. I used the new Groovy Guava (In Color '08) as the card base, Blush Blossom for the center matte (with Canvas BG stamped on it). I used the Groovy Guava and Really Rust for the petals. I faux stitched the edge and marked with a chocolate chip marker. The stem is faux stitched with always artichoke and a mellow moss ribbon knot for the leaves.

It's a relatively simple card, but I love the warm colors of Blush Blossom and the Groovy Guava together.

Thanks for looking!
Lisa
