Some of My Favorite Things

Good morning friends! Happy Monday! I found a bit of time to craft this weekend and made this card using the sweet sketch from My Favorite Things with some of MY favorite things.

Here are the DEEtails:

I started with this fun chevron background for my card and used the Stitched Line die from Your Next Stamp to create a nice stitched edge along all four sides. I die cut a little doily using dies from Papertrey Ink and their awesome patterned Vellum. It's hard to see in the photos, but there is a sweet polka dot detail on the vellum that is just the perfect touch! Next I layered on some more polka dots, with some Pool Party patterned paper (say that fast!) trimmed into a banner. These Bigger Blooms are so lovely and I die cut and stamped them in some of the pretty In Colors (Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding). I layered them to make a little cluster of blooms. The little flowers were dotted with some Sparkly Teal Gumdrops and attached with some Stampin' Dimmensionals to add a bit of depth to the flowers. I added some more Sparkly Teal Gumdrops around the doily as well. Lastly, I added some gorgeous seam binding from Paper Sweeties. I'm loving all the fun goodies on this card! I hope you like it!
