My girlfriend and I love to garage sale. We try to go a few times each summer and always have a blast.
A couple of years ago, I bought this embroidered fabric floral spray. I believe it is from the 1990's or so when older ladies affixed these types of embroideries to sweatshirts! This embroidery was new in package and was only a quarter! The outlined stitches are a lovely silver metallic thread and the flowers are given some depth with what looks like stickles!

I finally made this up into a card, but wish I had thought to use some silver mirri card. I chose not to at the time, as I was trying to keep this card from looking to dated and gaudy. A mistake, methinks. I even debated pulling up the first aqua layer of the card and rematting it with a thin mirri border, but I could not get it to budge...Sook Wang tape holds really tight!
DP are from my snippets files and sentiment is a rubon.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
