One Big Hug

I got these Flower Frame dies earlier this year, and thought it was time to play with them again.

supplies: white cardstock, various Doodlebug Designs patterned papers, Lawn Fawn Stitched Flower Frame dies, (retired) Winnie & Walter Noel die, Sunny Studio Fancy Frame Circle die, (retired) Simon Says Stamp Happy Every Day sentiment, button and twine, adhesive foam to lift flower and leaves

I used the plaid patterned paper to pull my colors for the flower.  Since I didn't have any blue, I added the fancy frame die in that color to the center of my flower.......looks like it was made just for it!  It's too bad that this sweet sentiment is retired, as it's useful for so many occasions.  When everything was assembled, I thought the card needed a certain something - I tried heart sprinkles and sequins, but they didn't work. Then, since these dies all have stitched details, I added a button with a bit of white twine tied into a bow!  And it also brings in another color from the background panel.

As always, thanks for stopping by - hope your week is off to a great start!  Be safe!

The paper you used for the background is so pretty and the colors you used for the flower and leaves complement it so well, Lin! Love this beautiful card.

The biggest, cutest hug a girl could ask for! Lin, I love that plaid, and this sweet little yellow button!
May I ask whose twine you're using? It looks the perfect weight for cards... I have lots that are just too heavy!
