CARDS publication

Hello. Hope you are having a good week. My little one has started walking - she's managed 15 solo steps so far - it's so fun to watch, especially seeing how pleased she is with herself.
Anyway, I have a card to share today that was featured in August's CARDS magazine. I forgot to share it sooner! There was a problem with this card though... it was published under someone else's name by mistake... but it is definitely mine! :) I made it for the stitching category - and boy did it take a lot of time to do all that stitching. :) But mums are worth a bit of extra effort don't you think ;)
I used patterned paper from MME's Follow Your Heart Be Happy pad, and a journaling card by Lily Bee (love using the reverse of these). The sentiment stamp is from THIS set (I masked off the 'Birth' on 'Birthday', and the flower was made using THIS die. Oh and I used a brad from THIS set.

I can definitely see why they picked this card--it is amazing! Love how you stitched around the hexagons--looks like a quilt.
