This is the last sample I made with the Affection Collection set and I can't say I'm surprised that this one didn't make it up on the boards, as I wasn't sure how I felt about it myself. The starting point was this idea of stamping the cloud image repeatedly without reinking the stamp to create a gradient look.
The border at the bottom was created with the Scallop Ribbon punch and I added cross stitches in it using linen thread. The border on each side of the card was made using the tip of the square image from the same set.
