Bright, Fun and Flowery

Some of my favorite crafting items are seam binding, sequins, flowers and beautiful color combinations.  This card has ALL of those things.  I used some October Afternoon pattern papers, pink and yellow seam binding, blue and pink flowers, machine stitching, and some inking.  It's a pretty simple card, really.
These are the challenges I've found where I can link my card.  I don't get the opportunity to play along often, but I'm always happy when I can.
Paper Sweeties April Challenge #30 - Hoppy Easter - I let the colors on the photo inspire me, and I used a Paper Sweeties sentiment stamp on my card
Crop Stop Blog - Challenge #3 - I used Tim Holtz Ink (as found at Crop Stop) as well as May Arts Ivory Burlap String (as found at Crop Stop)

  6. I am drooling over this one (in a good way)! The elements you combined are so lovely and it has this great shabby chic/retro vibe. It reminds me of everything good about sewing (pretty colors and zig-zaggy stitching) and none of the traumas (don't even ask about the last time I tried to follow a dress pattern!). You've done a remarkable job of combining fabulous colors and textures here and I truly enjoyed every aspect of this post and your finished product. Thank you, thank you for the inspiration and for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  7. Sierra, this is so pretty, the papers, the doily, perfection in the stitching dept., and that gorgeous seam binding and precious posies, LOVE! That's one gorgeous bouquet!

  8. Oh, this is beautiful! Your stitching is perfect, the fab sentiment looks great on the vellum die cut, and that flower and bow cluster is amazing!!! I love that you used so much color in it! You should enter this in The Shabby Tea Room Challenge, too! Thanks so much for joining us the the Paper Sweeties Hoppy Easter Inspiration Challenge!
