The above card, all of the elements just worked together. Not on purpose mind you, but in the end, I was surprised at how my brain worked to make it all happen! Used the swiss dots folder and it matches the dots on her dress sleeves. The stitching on the dress, my faux stitching onthe card, the look of stitching with the DP work. The term "sew" ties it all together nicely!
Challenges: Our Creative Corner sketch, Cuttlebug Spot- embossing and monochromatic, and 365 CArds Day #226- use the word "so" on your card: my "sew" is creative!
This card is following the sketch over at Lord Have Mercy. I just found her blog a few weeks ago and am amazed at how beautiful and inspirational her work is. Check it out. I also played along with Cupcake Craft Challenges #60 this week- buttons and stitching. My sewing machine hasn't been used in a bit, so I have ventured into faux stitching. Purchased a lady bug embosser (makes holes for you) and used a white Zig pen, hard to see the white, but I like the subtleness of it. Button on the felt flower finishes off the card. The papers and stamp sentiment are Close To My Heart stock.
