Make it Monday

I have quite a few cards to make for this weekend so I thought I'd combine one for the make-it monday go to sentiment card over at PTI.

This is a shower card for a special friend. It's been embelished up the yin yang - for me that is
First off, slow to jump on this but it's my first crystal flourish thingy...i like it !
The flower is made with PTI's medium scallop die, i made a few of these when my daughter was born snd I had no time to run to the basement...so brought some things upstairs to work on. The button is an aqua mist button with a jewel that I coloured to match the flourish. Ribbon is a scrap of SU Tafetta that i ran a seam up the middle and bunched up....again something I had made up a while ago. I peeked it behind the flower.
And right after posting this, I snipped the ends of that ribbon - it looked a little too long !!
I used several sentiments to make up my word block - all but one is PTI. Just showed me how little options I have for showers !!
Main sentiment is in Hawaiian shores, the rest of them are in versamark. Not 100 % happy with the alignement - lesson learned practice this first !! Some Zig zag stiches with my machine finishes it up.Papers are PTI' Fine linen, Ocean Tides and Aqua Mist. Felt is Ocean Tides


  1. Pretty - love the colors, flower w/ button & stitching!

  2. Purrdy my Rosie friend!

  3. Stunning card Rose, and what a fantastic idea to use the scallop die to make a flower. Must give this a go!
