A Mystery Item Card

Last Saturday was our monthly SALSA meeting (Stampers At Large, Stamping Away) and I took part in the Mystery Item challenge.  We got a strip of crochet ribbon with buttons attached. I hemmed and hawed and had an ah ha moment!  If I would run some of our twine through the top and pull tight I could make a flower!  So I set out to give it a try.

After making the ribbon into a circle I glued a die cut circle to the back to make it sturdy.  Then I used our Scallop Circle dies to make the base and embossed it.  I glued the ribbon to the scallop then, using glue dots of various sizes adhered down the buttons.

I added the flower center and a button from my sewing stash.  I also ran the envelope through the embossing folder as we have to supply a decorated envelope.

Card Stocks: Sweet Berry, Summer Days, and RSVP Prints
Dies: Journey Scallops, Star Burst Bloom Die Set, and Circle Around Die Set
Embossing Folder: Petals Wall
Other: Candy Apple Twine, and a pink button from sewing box
Adhesives: Journey Glue, Easy Glide Runner, and assorted glue dots (not FSJ)
Tools: Platinum 6 machine

What do you think of my card?  Did I come up with something different?  What would you have done?
