Birthday in Stitches

It's Hump Day and I'm glad it's almost the weekend. I have a lot to look forward to and hopefully accomplish a lot! This card features colors from K. Werner's Color Challenge. They're not my style at all and I really do not like the card. I should have called it quits this late in the game! I embossed 50 cards tonight, then tried to complete this challenge. What was I thinking? Well, at least I have a birthday card on hand and I also tried stitching too! It's very plain and simple, but you get the point!

Want to make this card...yeah right...well here is how:
  1. Trim cardstock to 11" x 4.25", then score at 5.5".
  2. Trim plum pudding cardstock to a square.
  3. Stamp flowers on lavendar moon cardstock, then cut out.
  4. Adhere flower square on plum pudding square using dimensionals.
  5. Stitch around the edges of plum pudding square.
  6. Adhere square to card base using dimensionals.
  7. Stamp sentiment on card base.
  8. Add liquid pearls.

You rocked Kristina's challenge! Seriously. I wouldn't be surprised to see this card in the Top 10. I love the stitching and the liquid pearls.
