Welcome - I am so glad you have called in.
I was inspired by a challenge and some Blog Candy I won recently when designing this card.
The background oblongs were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities rectangles, as were the two feature panels.
The background panels were stitched onto a white base using a sewing machine, but the main panels were actually hand stitched on using some variegated mettalic thread.
The edges of the feature rectangles, the white layer and the pink base card were sponged with the same Rouge chalk ink as the sentiment was stamped with.
The feature image is one that I 'won' as Blog Candy - thank you so much Rebekka. I initially stamped it with Memento Summer Sky and Cottage Ivy, them coloured the image with chalks. The centers of the flowers I dotted using a sparkle lemon pen.
After colouring the image with chalks I gave it a quick flick of hairspray - a cheap and readily available fixative.
The image was mounted on foam dots to give it some dimension, and some buttons were added to the bottom right of that panel and the top left corner of the card, stitching them so the ends were on top and tied off.
The final detail was a tiny bow in the corner.
