Simple Pleasures

Hello! I believe life is in the details. Simple pleasures throughout the day can be amazing! Like cuddling in the morning, a small gesture of kindness from someone who loves you, an outdoor lunch, feeling of sunshine on your face, your favorite music, an opportunity to be creative...  When you connect the dots between all these little joys, life seems fuller and more satisfying. 
Today I would like to share with you my card made from little things I love most. Colours, maaterials, technique, embellies...

I haven't use big or expensive things to create this card! 

First I played with blue ink and Memory Box stencil  to create texture background patterned paper. I die cut white hexagons using Clearly Besotted Honeycomb die.

Stitched around the edges, stamped  and heat embossed the sentiment on the folded tracing paper to create a pocket effect. Stitched the pocket too.

 Tied the satin ribbon, layered flower petals and added buttons.

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you make look back and realize they were the big things."
