Big Bloomin' Birthday!

Welcome, welcome! Today I am happy to be playing along with the current Case Study Challenge # 189, which happens to be featuring one of my favorite people in craft land:
This is the beautiful card that Wida created as our inspiration this week:

           My card features the stamp set by Avery Elle, "Fill In The Blanks". I've had this card laying around and thought it would be perfect for this challenge! Firstly, the die-cut card layers, secondly, the poppies! Wida loves poppies. I cut out several circles,  spritzed them with water, and scrunched them up into a loose ball. I smoothed the circles back out, and put something heavy on them to keep them flat and set them aside to dry for an hour or two. Once dried I assembled the flowers and stitched them together using a button, , needle, and thread. I finished off the bloom with burlap, hand cut leaves.  The patterned paper is by Simple Stories.

                                                      I am happy you stopped by today!

there is something edgy about this card. I think its the sentiment window. no it's the distressed randomly cut flowers. wait its the burlap. lets just agree something about this card is edgy and call it good because it is!
