Make It Monday 2, February SFYTT And Another Card For Katie

Happy Saturday. I hope your weekend is going well. The weather is still in the 50's here and no snow. Super happy about that. I am still eager for spring to arrive though.
Yesterday Sophie our squirrel killing dog came down with kennel cough for the second time since we got her. I have no idea where she could have gotten it this time though. She has not been around any other dogs except for when she goes on walks. Thankfully the meds the vet gave her are working and she is doing much better. I just hope Lily does not catch it now.
Today I want to share a card with you for this weeks Make it Monday Challenge which was to use a vellum sentiment strip in our work. I also used this months SFYTT sketch as my base.
This is what I came up with.

I am continuing with my challenge to myself to use my year of flower stamps and have used February's flower which is the violet on this one. I paper pieced it with a pattern from the Pretty Pastels Paper Pack then colored it with Copics. After that I stamped it again and cut out the middle then attached it with a pop dot to give it more dimension. Finally I added tiny pearls to the middle. The lace doily is from this SVG file but I took the holes out before I cut it. The yellow patterned paper is also from the Pretty Pastels Paper Pack. The purple plaid paper is from this digital paper pack. The Green Houndstooth paper is from an old package of cardstock I found in my drawer. Not sure who makes it though. The sentiment is from the YOF violets set as well. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new release PTI order with my button dies but they won't be here until Tuesday now. I got the dreaded reschedule. I tried to make my own paper buttons in the meantime using an SVG file that came with SCAL then I added them to the sentiment strip. I am going to be sending this card to Katie. I am continuing to follow her journey on her blog so I hope it will bring her some comfort on those days when she needs it. That's all for now. I hope the rest of your weekend is a great one and I will be back soon with more to share.

Oh my word - this is utterly gorgeous! I love your colour mix and the delicate look you achieved with your flower! It looks so cheerful without being bold and bright - and I'm sure will bring sunshine into Katie's day!
