CPS#157 with Stitched "Flowers"

Hello everyone! Thanks for all of the nice comments you have been leaving on the little blog here, I really, really appreciate them!
Today's card is one that I made for CardPositioningSystems, sketch 157 . As soon as I saw the circles on the sketch and it is being sponsored by Just Rite, I knew that I wanted to use this Dresden Plate image from Just Rite's "Stitched with Love" set. I love each and every image, border and the fun sentiments in this set, but today, I didn't use a sentiment or border. I wanted the images to take the stage. As you can see, I paper-pieced the center Dresden Plate with a couple of K and CO. patterned papers and added a newly acquired Jenni Bowlin vintage button to the center and added a length of embroidery floss. The other two are stamped onto PTI vintage cream cs and coloured with a sand Copic marker. I cut out the plaid "petals" in the plates and curled them up a bit to create these flowers. To the center, I added a paper vintage-y rose from Prima and adhered with dimensional foam to the vintage cream panel. The panel was embossed with PTI's Tin Types embossing plate and edged with a Copic marker (the sketch end)

I placed that panel onto another panel that I created using a MS round eyelet type border that I thought went well with the feel of this card. The card front is a K and CO. patterned paper from the same pad.

Thanks for looking, I will try to have another card tomorrow...until then
