Card For Two Challenges

Good morning!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  The weather is supposed to be beautiful here and I can't wait to get out and enjoy it!  First, I am here to share a card I made for two challenges: The Play Date Cafe Challenge #82 and CASE Study Challenge #40.  On the CSC blog, we are on week three with the amazingly talented May Muse, Sarah Martina Parker.  I love Sarah's work and was happy to have a chance to play along again this week.

Here are the PDCC colors:

And here is Sarah's beautiful inspiration card:

Here is my card for both challenges:

I started with a card base of GKD Soft Sand and layered with patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden 6x6 pad that had all the PDCC colors.  I machine stitched around the second layer.  I added a doily from my stash and some twill ribbon dyed to match with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Mini Message Cursive and it is embossed with white EP onto Soft Sand to make my tag.  A Zva Creative pearl flourish and a Prima flower finished my card.

Thanks for dropping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
