Simon Says 'Spring Flowers'

The latest Reason To Smile Release from Simon Says Stamp is fabulous and one of my most favorite sets is the Spring Flowers Stamp Set, so pretty!

I made this card to join in with the Less Is More 'Add Some Texture' Challenge 

I used a Bundle of Stitched Shapes for the rectangular die cut, this is slightly bigger than the biggest in the Stitched Rectangles Set. and added some texture using my fave Dot Fade Stencil and some White Embossing Paste. I then trimmed some corrugated card from a Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces Pack 

I coloured the flower with Distress Inks and finished with a die cut 'Scripty Big Hugs' die cut and some May Arts Natural Twine, I love that this twine is a bit 'hairy', I am sure that there is a better word but I can't think of one at the mo' ;-)

I love the texture created with the wonderful Dot Fade Stencil and embossing paste, not to mention the stitching. But, what grabs my attention from the get-go is the corrugated card! Unexpected but striking combination! You win! ;-)

This is so pretty! I love the "partial" embossing. I'm just getting back into crafting after a bit of a hiatus and I am loving the inspiration and ideas!
