I hope you all are enjoying the nStamp of the Month Blog Hop. The hop is in the post after this one. This is the third card that I didn't get finished in time to get a good picture of it. I couldn't scan it because of the big flower on it.
The inspiration for this card started with a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping. OK, so I got carried away and didn't keep it clean and simple. I guess that's just not my style. I sometimes don't know when to stop.
My card is 5" x 7" and was made eusing the Miracle Paper Pack. I just love the blues and greens in this pack. I stamped the sentiment, bunny and basket from the Sensational Season Stamp of the month. Clear embossed all & Colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out.
The flower was made with 6 scalloped circles made with the new CTMH 2" Punch. The leaves are from a Sizzix die.
The Hand Stitching was done with Colonial White Embroidery Floss and I added a light Green Sparkle in each corner, And a Sweetleaf bow in the corner.
Then to top it off and add a little more sparkle, I added the Glitz Gel to the tips of the flower and the eggs.
