Thanks a milliion

A few weeks ago I hopped along on the new release blog hop over at Newton's Nook Designs.  Much to my surprise, I was a winner of a great stamp set called Simply Sentimental.  I have two other stamp sets from Newton's Nook, so I thought I would make a card featuring their stamps as a thank-you for the prize. The flower basket comes from the Basket of Wishes set.

I stamped the basket on watercolor paper, and colored with distress markers.Then I added just a touch of wink of stella to the flowers.  The sentiment was stamped and white heat embossed.  Three tiny (2mm) clear/silver sequins were added. I loved the long tail on the sentiment, and decided to "hang" the basket from it using white embroidery thread.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
