SFYTT and Papertrey Spring Inspiration

It was a wonderful day at my house. We went to the park (mid 60s and sunny), got a new bed (upgrade to King size WooHOO!), and then went for pictures (we are a bit late on the 1 year old photos of Jack, but we got them done). So tonight I was thinking of Spring and the Papertrey Spring Fling Challenge. I loved the quilt that Pine selected and thought the paper from the Everyday Blessing collection worked perfectly with the theme and my day. Then when I saw the layout the Jen had at SFYTT it all came together.

I sewed a lot on this card. I always feel very inspired by the vintage designs that Kelly Lunceford produces, so I tried to channel her a bit. Sewing on cards is not difficult (for those who have never attempted it) and I am always amzed at how it kicks my cards up a notch. I loved the pairing of the coffee cup from Warm Happiness with the sentiment from a Hero Arts set, it really brought home how wonderful today had been. Remember to find joy everyday!
Supplies:
Cardstock: Archiver's
Pattered Paper: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Stampin Up (Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand)
Stamps: Warm Happiness (Papertrey Ink), sentiments (Hero Arts)
Ribbon: American Crafts
Other: Thread

Great stitching on your card, it really adds to the vintage look of your pretty card. I must try it sometime ~ after I dust off the sewing machine, that is ;o)
