Happy Birthday card

I am continuing to add to my Birthday card stash.  While I was cleaning out and purging my scraproom a few weeks ago I came across some InStitchez templates by Bazzill.  I remember buying them years ago and I had every intention of actually using them, but I never got around to it.  I thought about getting rid of them, after all if I had not used them in so long I clearly didn't know what I was missing, but I decided to make myself use them at least once.  You see my very first flower on this card.  It's actually very easy, but unfortunately time consuming.  I also used another one of the darling images my dear friend Kymberlee from The Paper Midwife sent me.  I love every single one!  

Paper -  Amy Tan's Sketchbook 6 x 6, Recollections cardboard 5 x 5 cards
Bazzill In Stitchez template and embroidery floss
Brad & Ribbon are from my stash
Stamps:  Paper Smooches
Spellbinders:  Nested Pennants
Silhouette:  scanned image and created outline shadow and mat for the little girl

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  6. Thanks so much everyone. Yes, Kymberlee we are quite a team! I am will take whatever you send me but I still have a ton to work with. I'm glad to finally be using them on a more regular basis.

  7. Had to giggle everytime I see that digi image! Nicely colored by Kymberlee, btw! I love how you highlighted the image with coordinating mats - didn't think the image could be any cuter ;). The stitched flower is very cute too. TFS!

    Vacation was wonderful and now back to busy as ever. The wedding is finally here on Saturday and once my company is on their way-I should be back to crafting. Yay! I miss all my blogger buddies! Happy Thursday!
