A Whole Lotta Challenges Going On!
Good Friday Morning Friends! It's been an awfully long week here and I'm looking forward to the weekend. Today's card combines a few challenges. The sketch is from Jen Del Muro's March Sketch For You To Try. This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is Spring Flowers. My Pure Innocence girl hasn't been used since last summer, so I needed to pull her out for Forgotten Stamp Friday. The recipe for this card came from Joanne Basile. She has posted a challenge for her Fourth Blogaversary. You can find all of the details here. We needed to pick three elements from Joanne's list. I chose Kraft Card Stock, Mixed Stitching, and Twine. My patterned papers are from the Stella and Rose collection from My Mind's Eye. I used a straight stitch on the horizontal pieces and a zig zag stitch on the gingham panel. All of the panels are accented with Not Quite Navy Card Stock. The image is from the My Favorite Things set, Blooming Good Day (now available in Cling Rubber!!) She is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG13, BG18, C3, C5, C7, E000, E00, E11, E25, E27, G21, G82, R20, R22, R24, and Y35) and her dress is paper pieced. The button is from Papertrey Ink and it is accented with some yellow and white Baker's Twine. I didn't add a sentiment on the front of this one because this will go into a package for my DH's grandmother. She likes to have blank cards on hand. That way she can use them for any occasion. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with another card to share with you. Until then...Toodles! :D
