Thank you card featuring gift wrap background, a punched accent and a little punchie greeting

For this card, I started with a smaller envelope and created a white card to fit inside.  I tore a piece of this beautiful teal gift wrap (from England) and layered another piece of the same paper in behind with back facing front which is this beautiful pink colour.  You can see a hint of the pattern showing through the pink.  I punched a flower on the right hand side, flipped it and adhered it back into the opening using regular tape on the back to keep it in place.  I added a teal sequin on the front and a little silver brad to keep it in place.  I found the coordinating pink greeting in my stash.  I sponged its edges with teal ink and adhered to my card front over the torn gap using 3D foam tape.  I have enjoyed time in my craft room making these cards!!             Therese

Slow Stitching - #3 of my third set of rainbow squares

I have finished my third square for my third set of rainbow squares.  This red one had a fairly wonky cross stitched element which I adjusted and pinned but I see still did not manage to get it stitched in place very square to the edge.  So it is!!  No plan for stitching this one other than doing one side at a time.  I like the colours in this one and the embroidery thread is a variety of colours as well.   Three more to go and then I will see about working up some quilting squares to around them - still working on the exact pattern I will be using.          Therese
