I'm so Blessed!!

It's a great day today!! Sunshine and birds singing. God is so good!!
Today I have a card to show you that I made for a friend who has requested a few cards to send to her MIL who lives quite a ways away and is going through a lot right now. She asked that I use this sentiment from the Verve set Just For You. I framed this beautiful sentiment with the Martha Stewart all around punches, and I created the flower with Spellbinders' Dahlia Nestabilities die, the Mega Lily leaves by Punch Bunch and a couple of snowflake punches, by Martha Stewart, in the center for the stamens . I added some Cinnamon Stickles to the petals to match the sparkle in the Fall in Love dp by My Mind's Eye.

I used yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch for a starting off point. I sewed across the top and bottom instead of adding the scalloped border, and I just realized, while adding my link, that I forgot the ribbon behind the main panel. *groan* I seem to miss one element each time I do a challenge....grrrrr.....anyway...back to the description....lastly, I added some bling with Rhinestones (Zva Creative and Kaisercraft). All the edges were ink distressed with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink).

That's it for today ya'll. For those of you who live in the US, hope you enjoyed your nice long weekend!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh

WOW...WOW...WOW...

Yep, pretty speechless!

How about a tutorial on your fabulous decorative punch, I haven't used any like that yet. And that flower is delightful; how about a tutorial for it too? :D Did you spray it with something; I like the sparkle and it looks a bit stiff; not flimsy looking. Just gorgeous!
