Pansies in Tea Cup - Squigglefly Challenge 37

Here's another card I finished yesterday. I went with my husband to the hospital for test and took some card bases along to stitch while I waited. Well, I wasn't going to post this until tomorrow, but I got some fantastic images from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and I have two cards in the works. One of which will be posted tomorrow for Digi Day with SNSS over at  SNR

We have another fun challenge planned for Digi Day tomorrow, but this time we thought we'd give you a freebie for joining us (you must play along by 10pm EST tomorrow( Thursday, 2.25) night for the freebie), PLUS we'll be drawing one lucky winner who plays along by Monday morning who will win a $10 digi credit to the store!!

This card was inspired by Squigglefly Challenge 37. I am so glad I purchased the Jumbo Coluzzle Circle template before Provocraft discontinued making them. It saves me the trouble of trying to find a bowl the right size to trace around.
This card was also made for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week to use flowers. This was an easy one for me since most of my cards have flowers..
My card was also entered at One stitch at a time Challenge Blog. This challenge was to use stitching. Well, 99% of my cards have stitching! *Ü*

The image for this card is a Digi stamp from Fred She Said. The image was printed then colored with Copic Markers.

The Happy Birthday & papers are from Close to my Heart.

The white pearls were colored with Copic Markers to match.
The Hand stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery floss.
