Sew happy

Hello and welcome! I was inspired to create this card by the wonderful color combo at the CR84FN Color Challenge, the button challenge at Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #151 and the lovely layers challenge over at Divas by Design.  The colors denim, tan and brown were the main challenge colors and I did not need to add any neutrals this time. Obviously the button challenge inspired me to use buttons and I found this neat button dp in the This & That Graceful 6x6 pad that worked perfectly. Four buttons later and my main image panel was done and I moved on to those lovely layers the divas requested to see. ;-) So here are my layers-image panel, 4 buttons w/twine, seam binding, die cut tag w/sentiment, dp that I matted, die cut crochet border, base dp and pearls anchoring my corners. Inside I dressed my card up with another base dp, die cut doily, stamped sentiment on a die cut circle and a trio of pearls for embellishment. It was a lot of fun to make and I'm sending this to a friend who truly makes me "sew happy."


 




Thanks for taking a look and for those of you looking to join a design team the CR84FN Color Challenge is currently hosting a DT call. Click here for the details and good luck to everyone who enters.
