thank you for your friendship

 Before I share what I have for you in this post I want to congratulate the winner of my FREE card give away for February!  And the winner is.... Beverly Ann Flamme : ) Please contact me and let me know which of the two cards you would like to receive.

Thank you to everyone who participated.  Please watch for my FREE March card give away coming soon! : )

Speaking of winners!!  Can you imagine winning $300.00 in free product form your favorite stamp company? Well that is what one lucky winner will get on February 15th!! in honor of Papertrey Ink's 7th anniversary!! I don't know if I will qualify for this prize because I already won $70.00 from them this week!! woo woo!! but I created this card for that challenge before I knew I was a winner so I decided to post again even if it is just for the fun of it!

 We had several sketches we could choose to use for our card and several "color recipes" .  I selected these.

This was a really fun card to make. It has a lot of stitching on it - as quite a few of my cards have had recently! : ) I think I miss sewing scarves LOL

I selected papers from Echo Park Paper Co.  I cut different width strips and actually sewed them to my card front.  I added a piece of satin ribbon from my stash and zig zagged it to the card as well. 

Using Thin Cuts Button die I cut two of each of the buttons from solid card stock.  I ran Bakers Twine through the holes and secured a backing to each button "hiding" the frayed edges of the twine and giving the button a little more dimension.

I finished it all off with a wonderful sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  It was a selection from Dawn McVey's Boutique Borders: Friends stamp set.

This is a very flat card! so much so that I was thinking of entering it into a "Less is More" challenge.  But after reviewing the rules for that challenge I see that card this one has too many layers!!

Thank you for looking!! Have a happy Monday : )

Inky (((((Hugs)))))
