Stitching a "A Note for You..."

I've been working all weekend on my artwork submission application to teach at convention this year.  I taught last year and it was a wonderful experience.  Not sure I could be so lucky to get picked two times in a row but it would be great if I did!  I've finished my artwork, now I just need to pack it up and get it shipped.  I'll be sharing those things a little later.

When I finished today I wanted to make a quick card for a couple of challenges.   Sometimes I get so caught up in new product that I don't have to time to go back and use some of my old favorite stamp sets.  Today, I did!  I pulled out one of my all time favorite sets and it's still available today!

I used the sketch #17 from CASe this Sketch and colors from Dynamic Duos for this card.



The colors are Close To My Heart colors of Topiary and Honey.  My stamp is Just For You (B1398). I used <Flower 3> on the Art Philosophy Cricut to cut the matching stamp.  Since the flower and leaves had a stitching print around the edges, I used a black pen and ruler to create faux stitch around the card and the cardstock pieces.  My finishing touch is the green bubble from the Green & Blue Epoxy Bubbles (Z1806)

Here is the sketch and colors I used:

                                             

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges for 'stitching'!

Thanks for stopping by today!
