Card with a quilted background and a crocus!
The crocus (Blackberry Jelly) image was what I found so I went looking in my stash of backgrounds and found this quilted one whose colours were good so I embossed it with the Lattice embossing folder (SU). I watercoloured the image, layered it onto yellow cardstock and glued it to my background with double sided tape. I found the greeting - laser printed transparency - in my greeting stash, laid it on my layer so that the H of the greeting was in the crook of the crocus, folded the right hand side of it to the back of the background and then machine stitched all the way around the edge capturing the folded right side of the greeting in the process. I glued this whole layer to a yellow card front. The greeting is free on the left hand side but there is enough pressure from the stitching to keep the whole greeting nice and snug to the card front. Worked our pretty well!
