new GKD set "Pressed Flowers" from Melanie Muenchinger

This is another card for Gina's challenge...now this was hard only because I love this set!!! Pressed Flowers was designed by Melanie and goes with her A Year of Flowers set. My head was spinning with ideas...but can only submit one card..so stayed with just stampin this rose from the set!!! (you know I wanted to break out the watercolors or Copics or pencils and  just "go to town"!!! but thought I would just STAMP for a change LOL)

the two new colors on this card are Ocean Mist and Creme de Menthe


also used Basic Grey's Euphoria papers and stamped rose onto one of its pink sheets with Pomegranate and then embossed. Cut it out and raised it on card - love how this turned out....used the MS lace punch and nestie tag, mini mini adhesive pearls and REALLY SEWED!
yep, I pulled out the 500 ton monster from the bottom of my overfilled closet (left quite a mess for myself digging it out)...of course my DH is standing there watching me on hands n knees digging this thing out...and had to ask  "what are you doin" ? "going to sew on my card" I replied...dont know why he found that so funny! but bless his heart he busted out laughin..glad I made his afternoon KWIM! so now I 've got to put the monster away....hmmmmm, another day!
gotta get busy on my next card for the challenge!!!

may be back again tonight after church!!! wooooo hoooo!!!

Hi Linda,
A great card in fabulous colours and it was worth all the effort of getting the machine out because the sewing is fantastic. I think you should just put the machine under the Christmas tree if it's still up - it will never be noticed. Lol.
Hugs,

Oops, forgot one thing. You need to find a place in your stamp room for the monster of a sewing machine, that way you aren't such a comedy routine for your dh! Your stitching is FAB on this :o)
