Gratitude

Hi everyone, greetings from Northern Alabama again where it was such a pretty day.  Up in the high 70's and tomorrow is suppose to be up in the 80's.  My tulips are blooming and everything is turning so green, as is my card for today....GREEN !!!

I wanted to try something different after my last disaster doing something new but this time I decided to go with some green burlap on my card.  I hand stitched with some floss at two of the corners and embellished with some punched flowers and gems.  The sentiment says "Gratitude is the fairest blossom that springs from the soul."  I used all different colors of greens, and they all compliment each other.  On the inside I left the top half of my card blank because I wanted to be able to show the beautiful embossing.  The bottom half is more flowers and a space for a personal message.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all are having the same nice weather as we are...

Supplies I used:
Image - TLC Sentiments
Card Stock - Joann's Fabrics and Crafts
Embossed Card Stock - Core'Dinations - Susana's Custom Art
Die Cuts - Cheery Lynn Circle Dies 
White Flowers - Michael's Arts and Crafts
Solid Green Paper Flowers - Paper Studio Punch
Gems and Burlap - Hobby Lobby
Floss - My Stash
Adhesive - Sookwang

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Wow...you got into lots of challenges with this one! I'm feeling a little overtired lately and haven't even made any cards...
    Been busy helping my daughter with the kids, helping DH sort the stamps from his Dad's collection and helping a friend who is seriously ill and off work.
    Now I need to sort my room before I can get my mojo back...teehee

    Very nice card!
