Seeds of Kindness Blog Hop

Thank you for stopping by my blog to view the project I made for the Seeds of Kindness blog hop for Gina K Designs. When I was ready to make my project for this hop I had a bunch pattern papers sitting on my desk from doing the latest color challenge over at StampTV.com. So this card contains a lot of yellow and green. I was originally planning to use the chocolate piece as a die cut border along one of the edges, but after running it through my Big Kick with the Tim Holtz die I didn't want to cut it. So I cut a piece of paper to slide through the cut area. I love how it looks. I pulled out my sewing machine and added some stitches. Then I colored the hanging plant from Seeds of Kindness to match and cut it out to hang it. I think it sort of looks like it is hanging in a fancy draped window. I had to add some rhinestone bling and a little ribbon accent on the tag. I like the sentiment I chose from the set to use on this card. This set is so much fun to play with and easy to color.
