I showed you my groovy doodles card the other day, and the more I looked at it, the more I knew I just wasn't done with it. So, the next day, I added some layers, and covered over that super dark panel of artichoke.
And, thanks to Beate's awesome suggestion, I added a circle rhinestone brad. I was thinking mega eyelet, but the blingy brad was perfect!
Then, I had to clarify exactly who it was that is so wonderful, and that is my Mom. I added back in some of that artichoke by using a faux stitch of the blanket variety. (See Emily G's tutorials section for all sorts of fun faux stitching patterns.)
Now, I'm happy to say that I LOVE this card. So much so that in fact, I had to upload the super up close picture of the flowers, with the brad, and that fun faux stitching!
