With the children back in school, that means I had time to stamp today--yeah!!!
I used Julee's wonderful mojo sketch as my inspiration for today.
Don't you love the bright colors of this Raspberry Tart designer series paper? I love it! I think I've used it on just about every card I've made lately. This paper is so bright and cheerful that it makes me happy when I use it.
It has been a while since I've use my Felt Fushion Flowers so I used them as the focal image of my card. The main flower is layered on some Kiwi Kiss colored DSP, so I made the stem of my flower Rose Red instead of green. I looped a couple of small pieces of ribbon and stuck them together with a Mini Glue Dot for the leaves.
I *very* carefully sewed around the circle layer on my card. I did each stitch individually (by turning the wheel on the sewing machine manually) so it would look nice. I think once I have more sewing experience under my belt I might try it with the foot pedal. Right now I'm not brave enough yet!
The word "Thanks" is from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. The stamp actually says "Kind Thanks," but I only inked up the "Thanks" part. Click here to see how I layered the Curly Label punch. I also added some paper piercing under the "Thanks" and in each of the scallops. My poor paper piercer has been neglected ever since I got my sewing machine.
Well, I hope you have a wonderful day today. I'll be back tomorrow with the newest sketch challenge for the Diva Coffee Break Design challenge. I'll see you then! ~Dannie
