For my card I used the Apple Cutie stamp for the focal point and for the layout I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #161. The little flags at the bottom were made using 3/4” Pink Grosgrain and 5/8” Champagne Cotton Twill. I also used a bit of Natural Jute to tie a bow behind the big loopy felt flower.
I have to admit, that I feel like I got my stamping mojo back while making this card. I haven’t been completely happy with the cards I have been producing lately… but this one gave me the warm fuzzies when I held the finished result. Maybe it was all the funky corner chomping, or perhaps the loopy flower… or maybe just the colors. Or maybe it was the awesome sketch (less thinking for me!). Or it could be all of the fussy cutting I did on the main image. There are a couple of portions (head and basket) that I stamped a second time for a popped up effect.
And here is one final shot so you can see all of the dimension. That may be what I love the most. :)
