Joyful Flowers

This is a two'fer card. What's that mean? It's my word for a card that serves two purposes.

First, I'm part of the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS that my friend Barb hosts. On the 28th of each month one of the members has a theme for us and we are to use what we have - no shopping allowed! - to make something with that theme. This month Terry is the hostess and she has challenged us to use our "favorite floral stamps" for our focal image. Now that IS a challenge... because I don't have one favorite floral stamp. I have many. So I chose one of them for my card - Unity's Everything Joyful and Beautiful.

Second, this is the day for a new challenge at International Art & Soul and the theme is stitching. So I added some stitching to my floral card. Voila! Two'fer completed.

Oh Jeanette this is amazing - love your colours, and the stitching seems to accentuate the dots around the flowers!

Love your paper piecing on your flower. Your stitching adds such a great touch to your card! Way to go to make one card for two challenges. I could not pick just one flower image either.....LOVE flowers!
