So Sweet of You!

Hi there!
How's it going in your part of the world?  I had a chance to get crafty this afternoon and came up with the above card for one of my favorite card challenges.  So, I entered this card over at
The Shabby Tea RoomHere is the lovely inspiration photo we were to follow...
For this challenge we were to use the colors aqua, yellow, white/cream, and use twine.  I had just finished crocheting little white flowers with pearl cotton and thought I'd use them on this card.  I began the card with my favorite line of paper, My Mind's Eye.  I sewed on yellow buttons to the center of the flowers.  The center flower on the vase was stamped with glitter added.  I free hand drew the vase and added yellow twine behind it.  Pretty seam binding ribbon from Paper Sweeties!  The sweet sentiment is from Paper Sweeties, also!   Pearls and sewing were added to finish off the card. 
Thank you for dropping by today!  Have a wonderful day, take care!
