Happy Birthday, Ericka!

I haven't created a card for a Papertrey Ink Blog Hop in quite a while, but I didn't want to miss this one. Our challenge was to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way. I used Dawn's Delightful Doilies stamps to create some flowers and I used embroidery floss by adding a lot of French knots.

Today is my friend Ericka's birthday, so I made this card for her. She won't receive it in time, but I'll send her the link.

The sketch for my design comes from Clean & Simple sketch #132.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day.
