I used PTI's Embroidered Blooms and Turning a New Leaf sets for this card. Unusual for me to use almost exclusively one set for any card (I used the solid leaf from Turning a New Leaf but then used one of the co-ordinating Embroidered Blooms stamps over it), but having just gotten this set I wanted to play with it and see what it could do. It's just a card, no special techniques besides the embossing on the leaves and flowers. I like the colors, though, and will be glad to send it to someone for some reason. Happy... Birthday? Anniversary? New Job? Second Tuesday of the Month? (I like a card that can work for a lot of occasions.)
And forgive the messy worktable that I have almost entirely but not completely cropped out of this photo. This card was really camera shy. It wouldn't smile at all against the white background I usually use, so I had no choice but to put it where it seemed more ... Happy.
Thanks for looking!

Oh yeah - I know all about those cards that don't cooperate with having their picture taken! I made one for my sister's b'day which I'm planning to upload tomorrow, and I don't want to say how many photos I took! I love your happy blue flowers, and the little narrow embossed strip rather than ribbon. And a versatile card is always a handy standby when you need something in a hurry!
