You're Sew Nice

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas:) We certainly had a very enjoyable one and are still making the most of our break from work/school. It feels a bit strange not to be making Christmas cards and a pity to be putting away those Christmas stamps for another year. So today I made a card which is a bit of a break away from my norm as I used a lot of patterned paper, bold colours and a (very!) wild colour combination for me!

My friend Linda sent me all the gorgeous, gorgeous papers on this card and I wanted to use them on a sewing related card - thanks again, Linda!

Stamp (Hero Arts) - Sew Artsy

To start with I embossed the sewing machine, added the gem and thread and placed the machine on a frayed piece of fabric. The sentiment was also embossed and I stitched on the patterned papers for the background.

I'm submitting this card into the Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Clear Take 'n Make. The picture of the challenge project must include the stamp/s used. As you can see the Sew Artsy set is much loved and much used by me! I'm also submitting the card into the Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

So glad you're finding a use for those papers, Heather! Just love the purple, wouldn't I??, and I love how you stamped the sewing machine on the aqua embossed Bazzill paper - so fun!!
