CPS 166 Love2Sew

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today's card is for the Card Positioning System sketch #166. I wanted to use the "Stitched with Love" set that is versatile and wonderful to paper piece the Dresden Plate image with pretty patterned papers. I based the colour theme on this background paper that I recently purchased called Town Library from October Afternoon. I love the green/cream and aqua combo and pieced the petals from Papertrey Ink's Green Boutique, K and Co.'s "Black and Ivory" and Cosmo Cricket's "Girl Friday".
I also used the back side of the October Afternoon dp to punch the new MS Arches border and layered it onto a piece of PTI Aqua Mist card stock. I selected some PTI buttons from my decorated jars and decided at the last minute to use some black seed beads to put in some of the button holes and then to line the top of the button border. Here is a close-up. The pretty button in the center of the Dresden Plate is a cream Jenni Bowlin button that I threaded with embroidery floss that I used a Copic marker on to try to match the Aqua colour.
That's it for now,
thanks for stopping in today,

ps Are there any hockey fans out there?
