A new week and there is no better way to start this Monday with a card for one of my favorite challenge blogs. This week on the City Crafter Challenge Blog it's all about sewing...Stitching on your cards or projects or adding sewing embellishments or images.
I 've been looking for some sewing embellishments but the ones I would love to add were sold out and I don't have any sewing stamps. They're on my wishlist :)
I decided to make a card and add a pin ( you could say a needle :) and a button. Just one and yes; I know that's not too much.... I also added some stitching.
Last Saturday I went to the craftstore ( seems like a weekly routine but I ran out of white cardstock and that's reason enough to go:) !!)
Being there I grabbed different kinds of lace which just arrived. You'll find one of these on my card.
Here is my pin/needle; it's handmade:
All papers are from Melissa Frances ( Vintage Posey). I slightly covered an embossed chipboard frame from Tattered Angels with a shade of green. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped with Tuxedo Black.
I got that lovely felt butterfly from Sylvia while we were swap partners.
Pink button from my stash. I inked the edges with white ink from Maya Road to soften it a bit...
I love this kind of lace but for one or the other reason which I still don't know it's not straight on my card. At first I didn't want to enter this card but time is running short and despite this uncooperative piece of lace I think it turned out quite lovely. (But I can tell you I was quite stressed and got pretty pi..ed. Forgive me my vocabulary)
Here is my not so perfect but I think sweet card:
And the flowers in the background? It's a bouqet I got from a very dear friend. We invited her for dinner and after 9 days it's still gorgeous. A few brown spots on a leaf which I removed. But the flowers are still beautiful!
I bought these pink cuties myself; I am ready for spring....
Have a wonderful Monday; till soon!
