My card is made using the “October Marigolds”. I stamped them three times, colored with Copic Markers and cut out and layered with foam tape for dimension.
I also stamped on the Sunset DP using Sunset ink.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.


The inspiration for this card came from a sketch at sketch & Stash.

Beautiful!! I love how you stamped them on the dp, too. And that is a great take on that sketch. I tried it last night on a card and it did *not* work at all! But now you've inspired me, so I'll have to try again. :-)
