My lucky day :-)

Hello and a wonderful Tuesday. Today's card is so not what i had in mind to make. I saw on my friend Jodi's blog some fabulous cards using Flower Soft. So i had to have some myself too. Jodi was so kind to help me pick some colors but boy those little tins sell fast. So i was able to get some white and one jar that's mixed and has the same colors as my K&Company Design papers. Anyhow as you can see.. no Flower Soft on my card. I still have to practice with it. The next thing was.. my husband bought me for Valentines Day a new sewing machine :-) so i use the fancy new stitch on the outer DP (if you click on the picture you can see that cute leafy stitch) and once that was finished the machine simply broke!!! Of course it was the last one in the store :-( well at least we got our money back. But after all that tweaking and not wanting to work on that card at all anymore.. i think it turned okay :-)
Embellishments: Pin and this super vintage round embellishment were sent to me by my friend Kristine - i added some pearls out of the SU Pretties Kit!!!, Lace by Joanns fabric, Flowers Prima Marketing, Riding Hood Red ribbon by Stampin Up, Pearl stickers sent by Carole
Other: Nestabililties petite oval, Martha Stewart lace punch, broken Sewing machine by Singer (lol) Paper: Neenah Classic Ultra White, Memento Black Ink, DP: K&Company, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze
Coloring: Copics - have no numbers because i had to start over twice :-)
oh btw.. have you seen Rachs FANTASTIC blog candy??? girls she has some of the wonderful Martha Stewart punches up and oh well.. iam in awe of her coloring .. her card using the Magnolia cupcake is simply to die for!!!!

It really is a beautiful card Claudia. As for the flowersoft - I absolutely love it. I have been using it for a couple of years but the key is REALLY tacky glue. In the UK we have Aileens tack glue and that works perfectly with it. Don't know if you get it there? Lol Lynn x
