Stitched Thanks...

Buttons and patches and the cold wind blowing, The days pass quickly when I am sewing. ~Author Unknown
I used this week's Fall-to-Layout at Clean and Simple Stamping for my card today as well as this week's Cupcake. I used the sewing, buttons and pastel colors with gray as my inspiration. I pulled out my ippity Because of You set and omitted just the center of the fun stitched daisy stamp. I stamped it in Pretty in Pink, then used a damp Qtip to take off the side swirls, then with that same damp Qtip I rubbed just a touch of color onto each petal and then sponged the inside with Marigold Morning. The paper is Basic Grey's new Sugar Rush, I wasn't sure I Loved this paper at first, but now it is really growing on me!!! The grey button is from the new Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride line, I LOVE that Cosmo added buttons to their line up!!
