Inspired Stitched Florals card


For the card I have to share today, I was inspired by this gorgeous cardigan from Anthropologie:

Isn't it pretty?  I love the fun look and feel of it!  On my card, I tried to replicate the flower outlines with stamping and stitching...

I also used Stamping 411's sketch this week.  I think it fit perfectly with what I wanted to do with the card!

Well, I have to run.  Thanks for stopping by!
