3 goals down with this card

I can honestly say that this is NOT one of my favorite cards but I accomplished 3 things on this card that I said I wanted to try this month so I'm posting it for that fact.

I used this sketch from Mojo Mondays (1st goal of this post):
Of course I had to flip the sketch. That's just the way I roll. I used the Stitch set from Skipping Stones for the sentiment and the embossed flowers.



I also made one of those paper flowers (goal number 2 in this post) that everyone has been making. I used the tutorial found HERE. It was super easy to follow. all papers are from a stack I had gotten at Hobby Lobby awhile back. I sprayed the flower with Glimmer Mist. It made it pretty and pinkish and sparkly. I also sewed the ribbon on card (goal number 3 in this post).I did a fold and sew technique. I'm not sure I'm sold on it totally. I would love to do more sewing on a card but it's gonna take some practice.

Finally I embossed the stitched flower stamps with Stampin' Up's Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I love how the sentiment section turned out.

one other thing that means nothing, but I find funny at the moment, but word verification is fart. not making it up. Thanks for posting.
