Sending Warm Wishes

This is another quick post for a simple message. I sure wish I was sending more "Happy" time cards instead of so many "Get Well" cards, but life sometimes throws us a curve, so I just have to go with the flow. 
Here is my card. 
It's pretty straight forward.  I used some DSP from the series stack and stamped a sentiment then glued to the front. I stamped the small image circle from the "Mixed Bunch" in a row of  multi-colors (primrose, poppy, tangerine, daffodil, starfruit) on whisper white and added another sentiment. Wrapped some thread around the top and glued to the bottom front. 
I die cut a large scallop circle from the backing of a tablet and laid it right on the ink pad. Then I hot glued a button to the center and wrapped embroidery thread around the scallops and the button to create my 'sun'; and taped the ends in back. I popped it up with dimensionals. 
Here's a peek at the inside and of course I like to add a touch to my envelopes too! 
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Hi Di,
Nice card, love the way you used the embroidery floss to mimic the little flower border on the bottom of your card and bring interest to the focal point, great job. Of course I too love embellishing the inside and envelope it just completes the whole package, doesn't it.

Love how you tied the thread around the flower! So creative and a fabulous look, Diane! This card reminds me of when I was a child and how we tied string around nails to make designs. Another great card!
