Springtime card

I have seen a round card made using these papers together with a decorative border and wording somewhere [wish I can remember where!] and it looked so nice. I liked the idea of the faux stitching around the edges which I did using a SU Chocolate Chip marker.

The wording is also stamped with Chocolate Chip and I have used the retired SU Handsome Hunter and Blush Blossom cardstock. Wish we still had the Blush Blossom card - I love it. Oh and the wording is stamped on SU Confetti White which isn't as stark as Whisper White and goes better with these papers.

I used one small Nestablilities die, cut out five and laid them along under the ribbon. The tiny rose and bling are from my stash.
