Stitches and Swirls November Birthday

I took a break from making Christmas cards to complete a few cards for November birthdays. I made this one for my sister-in-law, using Stitches and Swirls. Darker pinks, reds, yellows and greens were chosen to create a rich look.
* I stamped several images from Stitches and Swirls using Vineyard Berry (Close To My Heart). Copic markers were used to colour all of the flowers and leaves.  
* Before mounting this panel onto Scarlet Jewel card stock, it was impressed with the Stitching Impression Plate and the edges were sponged with Chamomile Tea Dye ink.  In real life, the front of the card looks like fabric!! 
* A Fine Linen card base was also edged with Tea Dye inks. The sentiment panel uses the inside oval from Framed Out #8 die and stamp set and the sentiment from Butterfly Dreams.

* The inside of the card uses a sentiment from Signature Series:Dress Form and additional images from Stitches and Swirls.
