Day 4 - Card Captain at Michael Strong's Group

It has been fun making a card a day for the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo group. Today I used Mike's Cloisonne Dragonfly on my Happy Birthday card, stamping it in crushed olive distress ink, then embossing it with clear embossing powder. The Happy Birthday (Hero Arts) is stamped with distress embossing ink then embossed with some gold embossing powder, manufacturer unknown. The center layer is the back of a piece of corrugated cardboard from a coffee sleeve. The green layer is cut with a nesta die and distressed with vintage photo distress ink. I crocheted the flower with some old Knit-Cro-Sheen (size 10 cotton thread). I added a bit of tulle to a large brad, then placed that brad in the center of the crocheted flower. You can find the crocheted flower instructions here:
Since making that crocheted flower, I have learned that stores now sell a size 3 cotton thread that's thicker and easier than the Knit-Cro-Sheen.
