I Just Can't Resist

I know, it's terrible and I need to stop.  But when I see something beautiful, I MUST have it.  When I first saw this beautiful flower print paper from My Mind's Eye, I knew immediately that I just HAD to get my hands on it.  I fell in love with the soft flowers in this print.  It is part of the Lost & Found Two Blush Line.  Yummy, isn't it?  It seems that the more I look, the more I find myself unable to resist all the beautiful products available out there.  There are certain companies whose products just NEVER disappoint, and My Mind's Eye is just one of those companies.

I made this card using the following supplies/techniques:
Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two - Blush Line
Stickers, Embellishments, Buttons, Sentiment Card - My Mind's Eye
Vintage Lace
Vintage Dress Pattern - Gathered and Sewed
Linen Tape - Vintage Street Market - on PP
Circle Punch - Fiskars
Machine Sewing
Ink:  Ranger

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

As a side note, I'm applying for a Guest Design Team position at Paper Take Weekly through this post.  Wish me luck.

Hope you're having a great day.  I know I'm ready for the weekend.  How about you?

Blessings,
Karen
