Violet

I made this card for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger, Fun With Floss and The Olympics of Stamping challenges!!

I white-embossed the flowers from Papertrey Ink's Year of Flowers: Violet stamp set then added the french knots as flower centers using embroidery floss. Maile Belles has a wonderful tutorial on how to make french knots on paper here. I hope it's ok to combine all those challenges in one card. I just got some yummy new stamps from PTI, so I had to play!! =)

EDIT: The winner of Jane's Bird Watching digital stamps set never showed up, so I picked another winner. It's Kim Piggott!!!! Please email me, Kim. I will forward your email to Jane so that she can send you your digital stamps!

That's all from me today. Hope you all have a beautiful Saturday!


Thanks for stopping by!


ingredients used:
