Party time

This cross-stitching came from the magazine called The Best of Margaret Sherry, there are 116 charts in this magazine, it looks more like a book but I found it in the magazine section.  It is from the makers of Cross-stitcher magazine.  My sister in law loves animals so I thought this would be a cute one for her birthday.

This ended up being a big card and needed extra postage.  I mounted the cross-stitching onto a piece of cardstock with scor pal tape.
BasicGrey Two scoops papers
Martha Stewart border punch
SRM stickers for sentiment
Spellbinders back to basics tags and Carnation creation for the big flower
Sizzix Tattered florals for the center flower
Sizzix Branch with leaves die (only used a portion of the die

We are enjoying another Beautiful weekend, I keep thinking this will be the last of these great temps and bright sunny days and then we end up having more, I am not complaining at all, I love it!

Hope you are having a good weekend wherever you are,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

What a neat card Connie. Love the cross-stitched image and how you used it on a card. The layered flower looks great.
