Hero Arts Monthly Challenge

Hey Everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.

I have made another card for this month's challenge over on Hero Arts.  Check out their blog for more information or the FLICKR pool to check out the entries to-date.
Supplies:  PP from MME Spring Papers, Hero Arts sentiment CL129 and Hero Arts Flower set CG128,
machine stitching, old french/english dictionary, Spellbinders scalloped circles nesties,
fimo button I made and embroidery floss.

I used Dawn McVey's method for making the vintage puffy flowers (see her video/post here) added a fimo button that I had made, some embroidery floss and voila!  I found an tiny old French/English dictionary that I used a little while ago! in school/college so I used that as my text / old paper source.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Great card Deirdre, I love these "poofy flowers" they always look great on a card as they add so much texture.

Fab card, Deirdre - I too watched that flower tutorial (but I don't have that punch - OK - it's on the list now!!!). I love your clean, graphic style.
