My Favorite Things

Along with "raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens", scrapbooks and die-cuts and hot glue in my kitchen" are a few a my favorite things.  I absolutely LOVE all the sweet things carried at My Favorite Things, and I just LOVE to play along in their challenges, although I don't often get the time.
Being a teacher is also one of my favorite things; but it definitely limits my crafting time because if I'm not in the classroom or in meetings, I'm usually buried knee-deep in paper work.  But tonight, I found some spare time to create a card after work.  I followed this sketch that I found on the My Favorite Things Blog.

I followed the sketch, and used some Bazill for the background.  I added some pattern paper underneath a piece of vellum for the big strip going vertically.  I used pink and green Bazill for the horizontal strips.  I machine stitched the edges.  Next, I used one of my absolute FAVORITE die-cuts from My Favorite Things for the flower accents (which I placed where the little circles appear on the sketch).  The flower die-cut that I used is their sweet Mini Hybrid Heirloom Roses which I cut from wool felt.  I also cut some little leaves for the flowers, and placed pearl accent stickers in the centers.
Here are the challenges where I will be sharing this card:
My Favorite Things Challenge Blog - Wednesday Challenge #227 - I used the MFT Mini Heirloom Roses die-cut on my card.  Details and links found above.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Let's Get Sentimental.  I used a stamped sentiment.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Don't Abandon The Coral - I didn't!
Paper Sweeties Challenge - Celebrate Mom's - I made a card to say thank you to my mom.  She's always doing the sweetest things.  I used a Paper Sweeties stamp for my sentiment.
