i hope everyone is having a great weekend! i actually had a really relaxing saturday, and enjoyed my scrap-time :)

so this card started with chocolate cardstock. cut and folded to a standard sized card 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. i cut white cardstock to 4 by 5 1/4 and dry embossed it with fiskars embossing folder. then i used my fiskars scalloped sentiment punch to punch a thin scallop strip. the designer paper used on this card is from BG's indian summer collection. i used tombo mono liquid glue to adhere the scallop to the paper.

i'm really not sure what to call this shape. it's like a square with corners punched out. i cut it out using my cricket with my gypsy, from the gypsy wonderings cartridge. then i added recollections white pearls in the corners.

i used my white gel pen to add faux stitching all the way around the card. the leaves are bazzil, and the flower is by petaloo.

 i attached the leaves with ranger's glossy accents. it can be used as an adhesive, and it works really well. i threaded an autumn leaves brown button with white embroidery floss, and adhered to the card using a glue dot.

i used BG's milk chocolate chip letters for the sentiment.

then i added two hearts, from the technique tuesday stamp set. using rangers distress ink in vintage photo.

i thought i was going to use that butterfly, but i've put butterflies on so many cards lately that i decided not to. i think it looks really lovely without it.
