You Are Special

Hello, and thank you for visiting me today as I share a card I created using some of my Crate Paper products along with a few other goodies.  I machine stitched the patterned papers together, added some ephemera and stickers (all from Crate Paper), and embellished my card with some WOC Mulberry Leaves and Sweetheart Blossoms from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The sentiment is a retired Paper Sweeties stamp, and the Fishtail Banner Strip is from My Favorite Things.
I did some machine stitching, and added some Ivory Burlap String, a piece of vintage scotch tape, as well as adding a turquoise leaf stick pin and half of a white doily.  Yes, sometimes I get carried away and just can't stop adding things.  This was one of those cards.  It was a lot of fun to make!
I'm playing along in these challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's September Patterned Paper Challenge - These are all Crate Paper patterned papers

Just Keep On Creating - Anything Goes September Challenge - Come and play along in the FUN challenge!

NBUS Challenge #12 (DJcardcreations) - My NBUS stuff on this card includes the Crate Paper ephemera that I've had for a while, but was hoarding away for a special day.  When I saw the NBUS challenge open today, I knew it was a CELEBRATION; and time to crack it open to use with my other Crate Paper goodies.  Thanks, Darnell!

Have a blessed day!
