Sunbonnet birthday card

Over at Catch the Bug we're playing "photo inspiration" this Saturday. Join us in the fun and be in tha chance of winning images from the Bugaboo store.
I used one of the Sunbonnet images and colored it with Promarkers, you can find the image here.

As many of you might know I love to machine stitch on my cards, but I've finally got my hands one some of those stitched dies. LOVE!
I layered my card using blue card stock and DP. I tucked some die cut leaf corners under the top panel, made with a LawnFawn die. I added some kraft flowers from Storyteller and added a white pearl to each one. I stamped a birthday greeeitng and die cut it with a Dienamics die.

This is my first weekend in "ages" I haven't anything booked and I'm going to enjoy each minute of it! Wishing you all a lovely weekend!


This card is also for these challenges:
1) Fan-Tastic Tuesday - #81 Anything Goes with a twist: Stitching - real of faux
2) Brown Sugar - #143 Anything Goes
3) Pile It On - #65 April Showers Bring May Flowers

Love the blues, the stitches, textures and pretty dp on this card. The tan flowers certainly brought out the blues too. Such a cute image, and I liked that you did the very subtle touches with the images...which made it stand out great from the background. It put me in mind of the old quilt pattern, Sunbonnet Sue. Youtube has come wonderful Brusho videos, specifically Eileen Godwin. I think Brusho-s were a UK product. I had to wait for a while to find a USA source, and the product sells out quickly. Happy wkend, and TFS
