I'll Never Forget You

For this week's My Favorite Things sketch on SCS. MFT is releasing the PI's in a year of flowers. This is Carnation/January. Don't you love that great big carnation!!! She was stmped in dark brown, colored with copics, and cut out and layered on a deckled oval nestie. Stitched around the nestie in kraft--Jody Morrow does this stitiching all the time {first time I have accomplished it} and I used her advice.... go slowly, one stitch at a time!!! It worked but, you have to have time and patience. Jody also sells sticky stuff (red sticky dots in a couple sizes, foam dots in brown and white-great prices and great service}. DP is Basic Gray's Green at Heart and ribbon is seam binding from SU always artichoke.

Here's the card....

The bow was supposed to be on the right but, as you can see I had to switch it!!

TFL!! Love when you stop by, leave a comment if you have time, always enjoy reading them!!
