Posy Patch Creation

Hello! Well I finally took the plunge and played with my Heartfelt Creations stamps that I bought back in Oct at the stamp show in York PA! The challenge over at Joan's Garden helped get me motivated! They have a awesome prize package sponsered by Heartfelt Creations in honor of their 25th challenge!

I LOVE the cards I see made with these stamps, all the layers and dimension you can get with them. I guess I've been kinda intimidated by them, afraid I won't do them justice maybe?? Anyway after MANY hours and going WAY outside my comfort zone, I have finished my card and I'm very pleased with it!!

I took a paper doily and sponged it softly to better match my colors. I really like the look/feel it adds to the card. I used one of my vintage hat pins that I've been hoarding, I came across them the other summer at a yard sale! I added a few beads, stuck it thru my lace an added a pretty bow(that I made with my Bow-Easy, Love that thing!). The flowers are cut out and popped up at several different levels to give it lots of dimension. I added different size pearls to all the flower centers. I finished it off with 2 of my own crocheted butterflies. I added a little trail of pearls to each one.

I have decided that I will give this card to my Mom for Mother's Day! She LOVES flowers and she is the one who taught me to crochet and I think it will make her smile! She doesn't use computers so I know I can keep her from seeing this! I just need to keep it hidden here at home for when she stops by.

Well thanks for stopping by, sorry for the long post today! The list of challenges this is for and all the supplies used is listed below. Please let me know what you think of the card! I may even start working on another one now that I have the first one under my belt!! LOL :0)
