I didn’t plan to make a card today, but when I saw the colors chosen by Pam at SplitcoastStamper’s Color Challenge, I just couldn’t resist. So the colors that had to be used were Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate – soft colors that’s fantastic when put together. So here I am again, embroidery floss in hand (yes, I do have plenty of those, in lots of different colors, lol!), making flowers for a second Proverbs 31:28 card. I always print a second sentiment or verse when I’m making a card, just in case I make a mistake…so I’m using the scripture that I printed yesterday (see my first card using this verse).

For this card, again, I used Strathmore Watercolor paper (cold press 90 lb) cut to make a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. The gray cardstock (Recollections) measures 2.5″ x 3.75″ and has a vellum overlay (The Paper Company). The vellum was cut an inch longer than the gray cardstock so that I can fold it over and the adhesive won’t show through. The blue flowers were made from DMC floss # 4020 – it’s variegated, so it has those beautiful soft blue hues. The pink flowers were made from DMC floss #3716(pink) and the centers from DMC floss “blanc” (white). These flowers were made like pompoms, using a 26-gauge floral wire to tie the floss together and also serve as stems. I added some curled wire for more interest (they look like flower buds). The leaves were punched from the same gray cardstock with a Martha Stewart leaf punch. Using a Chalk Writer (Craft Decor), I doodled short lines on the leaves. The entire floral arrangement was hot glued onto the vellum/gray cardstock piece and mounted on the card base. The Scripture print was glued over the flowers (now, I realize that I should have made the vellum/gray piece longer…oh, well!), and half pearls were added on each side. Pearls were also added on top of each blue flower. Here is a close-up of the flowers:
