Whiff of Joy Challenge #2 - Stitching

This card is for this week's WOF challenge. Stitching...wheeeeeee! Get to use my sewing machine! I had the song "Wild Thing" on my mind for some reason today so I used the Melinda Hugging Heart image and printed the sentiment from my computer. Colored her with Primacolor pencils, added Stickles to her wings. I cut her out with a rectangle Nestie then chalked around her while the image was still in the frame. Used the scalloped rectangle for the mat and edged it with Twinkling H2O's. The base DP is Basic Grey Periphery which I stitched to the Kraft cardstock base. I Cuttlebugged the blue paper with the Allegro folder, then inked the raised parts, a bit of the background and the edges. Attached the ribbon then Melinda. The flowers are from the Verve Abundant Blessings set. The paper I used for the sentiment and the flowers was actually the paper with the item list that Verve sends with its orders. Geez, everything I get my hands one becomes potential craft stuff for me! :) Anyway, I cut the sentiment out with a scalloped oval Nestie, edged and inked it with two different Queues and attached it on dimensionals. I tappity tapped the flowers with the same two colors (Prussian Blue and Chestnut Roan), cut them out and attached them with dimensionals as well. Added Dew Drops for a final touch to the oval.
