Sorry I'm Late....

Today's' card......
I was a lucky winner at Tuesday Throwdown with this card-Thank you so very much x
I recently bought some Lawn Fawn cute stamps and a die, so I had a little play...
I started by using a wavy embossing folder for the top of the card.
 Next.. I stamped the flower, three times and then used white pigment ink
and water colours to colour them in.
I was going for the homespun look.
I die cut the pretty flower border twice so that I would get a hi-light of white behind.
The white stitches around the edge are free-hand drawn.
The rain/teardrops have been stenciled and then hi-lighted with perfect pearl powders.
Normally this technique is a lot more subtle but on the colour of the kraft card,
it was quite pronounced but still subtly shiny, which I liked.
The photo shows the mica/PP over the card but IRL it's only showing on the rain/teardrops.
I used the teardrops to emphasize the sentiment.
I finished off with stamping the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by.
