My card today is an Easel Card made using the FSS Pumpkins and Sunflower pre-colored image, and the Sunflower and Thankfulness pre-colored set. The images were all fussy cut and layered multiple times with foam tape.

The inspiration for my card started out with the Sketch and Stash sketch challenge.It may be hard to see in the photo, but the background papers were made using the water stamping technique.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.Your secret word on my blog is heart

Your next stop on the hop is Carolyn's blog.
