Forever Card for the Hens' Den Design Team 9/19/12

Hello Everyone:
Anita here with another card this month with this gorgeous Teresa Collins line called Fabrications.  I just thought that I had to hand stitch around the flowers and the stems to make the flowers pop.

1.  Cut the red side of the Red Quatrefoil paper 4 1/4 X 5 1/2"

Assembling Card:
1.  Pierce holes in your Red Flowers paper around all the red flowers and some of the stems.
2.  Stitch with floss being careful not to rip your paper.
