I had so much fun making this card! I was so inspired by these fun papers from Glitz that I wanted to use all patterned paper - only using plain cardstock for the base.

I tinted modelling paste with ink and used a stencil to make my background. While that dried, I stamped lots of flowers from Sunny Days and fussy cut, adding twine to the button centers. The sentiment, also from Sunny Days, was stamped on a Scroll Die stamped with the Scroll Plain Jane. I've also used the Leafy Sprigs die.


A large seam binding bow was topped with a button and twine. To balance the bow I added an All Aflutter butterfly stamped on an All Aflutter die. A couple of enamel dots finish everything off.

Here's the inside...



It's time to go visit with the lovely Susan now. Happy hopping and good luck for the amazing prize!
