Which Three Things will you choose to make your Card?

Stitched Crafting Forever

This Crafting Forever stamp set combined with the Stitched Seasons Framelits popped into my head and turned out pretty close to what I pictured which is an unusual occurrence.  Things usually turn out way different than the way I pictured them.  This is a pretty quick card to make.
