Have a wonderful day!

I have another card for you today using the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge. I actually made this one at the begining of the week but never posted it. I decided to go ahead and do it today. I used my Linen and Canvas impression plate for the bottom of the mat using New Leaf CS layed onto my base of Kraft CS. The image is from Floral Fusion #1. I had made a mat with thin cardboard from another project (which I wound up not using after all) and didn't want to throw away the cut out so I used it on this card and stamped my image. I used New Leaf ink for the stem and leaves and Raspberry Fizz for the flower.I tied embroidery floss on my button and glued it to my flower. I also used some liquid pearls on my leaves and round the button. I stamped the flower again on white and cut it out and popped it up with a pop up. The ribbon is Raspeberry Fizz saddle. I did score three lines above my impression and then used a white gel pen for some faux stitching. When my husband first saw it he thought I did some sewing on this card. When I first saw this set I was really drawn to the sentiment because I have been using it as my signature in my emails and at the bottom of my posts so I just had to use it. I stamped it with Raspeberry Fizz ink onto a Fillable Frames #11 and cut it to fit the top of my card. I used a couple of brads that I have had for ages. I used a corner rounder from Creative Memories. I distressed all of the edges with Snow White ink.

Nice card! I never thought of using liquid pearls as an accent on that set... great way to add details, isn't it? Speaking of details -- you certainly packed your card full of them! And, I think you're right... that set was made for you. :)
