Purple and Yellow

Good evening!
I finally finished the card I've been slowly working on as I have had a chance. I used purple and yellow, which are complementary colors, and I love putting them together.

I am going to enter this into my very first challenge, being held at Make It Colourful.

I used the Sew Easy products from We R Memory Keepers to sew the edges of this. I really love these products, especially since I don't have a sewing machine. They have many different heads for it that you can change out to make different designs.

This was also my first attempt at making hat pins. I love the look of these and how it adds a special element to the card. I found all of the supplies to make them at Hobby Lobby. 

I really like this Tilda Blowing Hearts!!! Actually, I like all of the Magnolia stamps. They are all so unique and sweet! You really can't go wrong with any of them!

Here's an up close look at the sewing, my tag that says love you, the hat pins and the flowers for Wild Orchid Crafts.
