Sweetheart Thanks

I'm trying to make myself use more of my punches and stamp sets that have been collecting dust.  This card features the stamp sets Sweetheart and With All My Heart.  I went a little monochromatic with the two-tone flower, using Peach Parfait and Tangerine Tango.  I think the Glimmer Brad sets it off, too.  Do you see the cross-stitch along the left edge that I did with Linen Thread?  Well, it was a good idea at the time but was trickier than I thought it would be due to a particular needle and holes that were too small.  Good thing that this card is for a special friend as I don't think I'll be adding the cross-stitch detail to another card for quite a while... my thumb still hurts from the sewing!  Ouch!

Great idea to brush the dust off of little used products! Love the happy colors, and how you highlighted those colors in the text of your blog post.

You mean dust isn't supposed to be in your stamp room? Great card!
