Hello there, Crafty friends. I am excited to show you the card I made for the two challenges I joined (yeah, I don't get a lot of time to join more) and need to make a card with a Magnolia image on it to qualify for the Magnolia Challenge #43...I just love their images (though costly, I was able to buy a few of them). The challenge is to use a Magnolia image and incorporate it with the sketch made by "Jay-Jay" (visit their blog at http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com) I also entered the same card for the Cuttlebug challenge "Be Inspired #71 (details on http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com) which needs to showcase stitching in a project. Here's what I came up with.
SEASON TILDA CARD:
Isn't she pretty! I used Gamsol to color the image and for the first time, I DID STITCHING on this card. I have been wanting to do that for more than a year now and even bought a sewing machine for that purpose but yes, it gathered a lot of dust sitting in the corner of my craft room for a year or so. But then, thanks to Cindy and her sewing tutorial (http://royalthings.blogspot.com), I was encourage to try it...I am just happy that I didn't sew my fingers in the process...LOL I used Prima flowers, dew drops, stickles, Cuttlebug embossing and a sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps.
Here's the inside of the card...I got carried away stitching all over the card stocks, as you may notice but I provided a nice space for personal message with another embossed image on the side...All in all, it took forever but I am happy with the results and I hope you enjoy this too...Have a blessed morning and I'm getting ready to worship the Lord Jesus in the Church later on this morning.
