helpful sally card by lauren bergold/Pixie GIVEAWAY round 5 Winner

i am totally in love with the retro-inspired october afternoon wild cards that come in this month's SPRINGTIME PIXIE kit, and i immediately thought the "helpful sally" one would make a great thank you card!

i really wanted "sally" to be the star of the show, so i tried to pare down the other patterns involved; and for my largest layers i actually used the *backs* of two patterned papers in the kit: the soft pink makes a great place for the gorgeous, fancy "glitz" rub-on frame; and the sandy taupe is the perfect host for some tone-on-tone hand-stamped "THANKS" sentiments.

i used the packaging from the girls' paperie buttons... (and one of the buttons, too!) make a little distressed flower accent. while i had the embroidery floss out anyway, it seemed like a good idea to add a hand-stitched border. finally i mounted the entire thing on the gorgeous goldenrod cardstock from the kit; i like the way it draws the eye immediately to sally's dress!

i don't think i've ever made a card in these colors before...but i kind of want to do it again as soon as possible; luckily, there are *EIGHT* more "wild cards" left in my pack! :)
