some more cards: stitching and Copics

Here are a couple more cards that "go together".

I think the patterned paper is Crate Paper.  For the background of the panel, I used PTI's Beautiful Blooms 2.  The sentiment circle is from a Fiskars set.  I love the added texture of stitching on cards and pages... but I sure wish I had a sewing machine fairy to change my thread color for me each time! ;)


Here I used Turning a New Leaf for the background, and the sentiment is from Take Three: Summer.

This next card is another Lily of the Valley colored with Copics, one of my first attempts, actually.  I love this set.  By the way, I know that the flowers "should" be white, but I just think coloring them adds so much more to the card! ;)  The background is Polka Dot Basics 2, and the sentiment is Take Three: Summer. 


Thanks for looking! Have a wonderfully crafty day! :)

Nice cards, lady! I love the LotV card..the coloring is perfect! I really should learn to sew on cards..and by a sewing machine. I like the look it gives to your cards.

Love the stitching (I'm with you....it just adds that extra something to a card) and that lily card...now you're going to make me go and get that set :)
