A Special Girl

Well it is a beautiful Sunday morning here. I had hoped to spend the day in my stamp room but instead I have work to do for my real job. I don't usually have to work on the weekends but I have a few things that just need to get done. Last night I took a break and made this card based on Jen del Muro's Sketch For You to Try.

I just love this "Poppy Bittybloom" from Stamping Bella. The papers are from Basic Grey. The skirt and hat are paper pieced. The larger poppy is popped up and I added rhinestones to the center. I used my sewing machine to add a little stitching. The clear flower is Heidi Swapp and I added a polka dot button from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!
