Love and Laughter Card with Brooch

I love making fabric brooches and as I have been making quite a few recently decided to make one as an embellishment for this card.

I made the flower brooch using various size circles of a couple of different fabrics and some gems.

For the background I stamped some kraft card with white ink. The ink looked very bubbly on the stamp (don’t know if it’s going off or something!) but I liked the textured look it gave when I stamped it, so just left it as it was. I used some of my scraps for the scallop piece. The sentiment is from a gorgeous Christmas set (thanks again Linda!) and I just didn't ink the Christmassy part of it.

I’m submitting this card into the DIY Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, the Lily Pad Cards Flower Challenge and the current Hero Arts Challenge.

We have had the most glorious weather this weekend and so have spent more time in the garden then my stampy space. Hope the weather is good wherever you are!

So very creative, Heather! Love the yummy ocean colors on that dear brooch (is it removable for wearing?). A great pairing with the kraft - love the contrast. Beautiful!
