Challenge #28 at CTO - Sketch
Good morning everyone! Time for another challenge at CTO. This week's challenge is to make a birthday card following the sketch shown here. I don't know about you, but I like challenges that have you follow a sketch, especially when I'm having a hard time finding my "mojo". :) So for my card I used The Paper Company cardstock and the pattern paper is from a pad of Colorbok that I got at Walmart. The sketch shows some stitching so I thought I'd try my hand at machine stitching. The ribbon turned out ok, when I tried to do the stitching around the paper, not so much. I tried 3 different times then gave up and used my Zig marker. So much easier!! lol The button is from Stampin Up, floss from my stash, the flower is from Prima, and the sentiment from a My Pink Stamper set. Aside from the stitching fiasco, this was a simple card. Note to self....stick to faux stitching!!! :) Now, it's your turn! Join the fun and follow the sketch to create your card. If you haven't had a chance to check out my fellow DT members, please do so because we have a talented bunch! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
