Thinking of you

Good evening- a later post from me for today's LIM challenge as we have been out and about with the dog today. The challenge Chrissie and Jen have set us is Paper piercing (putting tiny holes in your project).

I decided to case this card from Debbie over at Lime Doodle- she does CAS so perfectly!

For my card I stamped a background from Kirsty Wisemans grunged stamps set. Then I added the sentiment from a Marion Emberson set. The stem and leaves are memory box die cuts; Chloe stem and Lorelai stem which was trimmed down. 

I pierced the leaves, tied the stems with twine and added grey pearls to the flower head. Finally, after sticking down the main elements I added a line of tiny holes under the background block. I mounted the white card onto vellum before attaching it to the base card with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to take a look at my Paperstash blog candy.
