PTI & SSS

We Love Dawn
PTI Designer, Dawn McVey, is recovering from a small intestine transplant.  There's a special blog hop, We Love Dawn, to offer support & send her some joy.  It's suggested to use one of Dawn's sets & I thought that was a great idea.  I love Spruce & Sprigs, but decided to use Friendly Flowers for my get well card. 
The panel die cut with Mix & Mat Flourishes was on my table & I stitched it with red embroidery thread.  The blooms were cut from white felt & the leaves from dark brown felt.  I loved making French Knots when I did cross stitch many years ago.  So fun to make them for my flower centers!  Tiny Tags stamp & die was used for the sentiment with Hero Arts Cup O' Joe ink.  The panel was mounted with fun foam to a card covered in dark brown cardstock.  Very simple, but hopefully Dawn will like it.  I'm entering Word Art Wednesday.

My friend, Betty, gave me several C&9th Watercolor cards a long time ago.  Finally got the courage to use one & die cut it with SSS Birch Tree Window. 
I sprayed it heavily with gold Perfect Pearls & mounted it to a kraft card.  SSS Painted Thanks was die cut from kraft, stacked 3 high & clear embossed.  Finished off with sequins & love how it turned out.  I'm entering SSS Flickr #83 & Die Cut Divas.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
The Diva's that cut ....paper!

  16. Those are the sweetest flowers cut in felt and, oh, my gosh, the stitching is perfect with them! I also love that birch tree die. The ready-made watercolor background sure makes it easy, but it's all that much prettier with your pearly spray. Beautiful!
