Flowers of tomorrow...

This card is for two challenges: Mojo Monday #82 (sketch) and No Time to Stamp's Stamp Simply #83 (to thread something).

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Kiwi Kiss, Bordering Blue (both of which had their bottom edges punched with the scalloped border punch), and DP from Chloe's Closet by Making Memories. The next element is Kiwi Kiss on which I used my Fiskars threading punch and threaded some blue 1/2" ribbon through, tying it in a knot. Then I tied on a large button from the Chloe's Closet button collection with a Kiwi Kiss look alike DMC emboidery floss. The focal image and sentiment is a Plain Jane from Verve, stamped on Whisper White with Bordering Blue and cut/embossed with a square Nestabilities die. It was popped up with 3M foam squares on layers of Kiwi Kiss and Bordering Blue, both cut/embossed in the same way and following the sketch.

Thanks for dropping by today!
