For my card today, I used both sides of a piece of K&Co designer paper.  I simply used my piercing tool to place holes along the stems and flowers design on the paper.  Then I used DMC floss to do my stitching.  A long time ago, before scrapbooking and cardmaking took control of my life,  I did quite a bit of cross stitching and embroidery so I have lots of floss that I haven't used in years!  I cut out several other flowers so that I could layer them for dimension.  The flower centers are french knots!  That was always one of my favorite things in embroidery!!!  I love the sweet homespun look that stitching gives to a project.  Can you believe I didn't use any stamps for this card? Anyway, come join us, we would love to have you!  Have a great Wednesday!!! 
Here are the supplies I used for this card:

Neenah paper for the base card
K&Co designer paper
Cuttlebug Damask Combo, With Gratitude Combo and Butterflies Combo
DMC floss
Sponges and Piercing Tool
SU! ribbon and Sage Shadow and Ruby Red Inks
Copic marker
