Papertake Weekly - In Stitches / The Sweet Stop - A Sketch / Stamping Bella - A Square Card

Well today is Canada Day here in my country. I really should have done a red and white card with maple leafs on it, but I didn't. I've come down with one heck of a bug. I feel all chilly and feverish, and my throat is just killing me. A teaspoon of honey every couple of hours is the only thing that is helping, and rest of course. I've really done nothing all day except take the picture of my card, and a couple others I finished last night in the wee hours of the morning because I slept from this cold all day and couldn't sleep at night. LOL.
This card was done for 3 challenges. Papertake Weekly Challenge is looking for stitching on your cards, The Sweet Stop has this sketch to follow:
and Stamping Bella is looking for square cards. For this card I used the Stamping Bella image Daisy Balloon. I colored it with my copics to match the fantastic Basic Grey paper Kioshi. I think this is one of the prettiest lines of papers Basic Grey has come out with in a long time. I just love the colors in it. I cut out my image and the squares with one of my Nestibilities. I punched a boarder out with my Martha Stewart punch called Daisy Edge and added some purple ribbon I had laying around on top. I added a floral button that I just got at Michael's last week, and of course some glitter. What is a card without glitter. Anyways I hope everyone is having a fabulous day wherever you are. The weather here is now gorgeous and sunny. Perfect for Canada Day celebrations.

Hugs xx
