Paper Sweeties February Release Rewind

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Hey, friends!  Well, here we are at the close of another fabulous, Paper Sweeties release.  I hope you're anxiously anticipating the arrival of lots of new goodies to your doorsteps.  While you wait for them to arrive, I've got one last, release-inspired creation to share.  Let's get to it!
I started this card by trimming the bottom of a piece of multicolored, floral, patterned paper with a wide strip of woodgrain, patterned paper and anchoring the two, with black-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches, to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.  I then stamped the bottom center of a library tag, in Jet Black ink, with the "With Heartfelt Gratitude" sentiment.
The center of the tag was stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the flower pot and stem/leaves which were colored with pencils and topped with a stamped, in Coral Calypso ink, on a Coral Calypso, cardstock die cut, flower.  The flower itself received a More Mustard, cardstock, die-cut center and was popped up with foam tape, while the pot was dressed up with a simple, sequin butterfly, laced with white string.
After securing the library card, with more foam tape, to the card face, I punched it, framed the hole with a reinforcement label, and dressed it up with lots of yummy trimmings, including more of that scrumptious, Frosting seam binding ribbon from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe; ivory lace; and a black, checked bow, topped with a large pearl.
And here's what's new in The Shoppe.

Thanks, as always, for your continued visits and comments!  And a big thanks to Debbie and her talented crew for always making me feel like family!  Be sure to stop by and leave them some love.  Big hugs and blessings on you all!
