LSP Sewing Challenge
Bonnie from the LPS DT has challenged us Team Members to make a card using some kind of sewing on our cards.....
Oh my - I have not used my sewing machine in I don't know how long - LOL!!! But I definitely wanted to give it a try. As you can tell I did not go overboard - LOL!!!
I have used this fun layout that I have seen over on Lynda Benden's Blog the *Stamp Act*.
Of course we had to use a *Little Paper Shop* Stamp Set to complete our cards and I have chosen this wonderful *In Loving Memories* Set. It's always hard to express your thoughts and feelings when someone you know has lost a loved one, and this wonderful Set says it all.
My card started off with a Whisper White card base and then I have added a panel of Groovy Guava, a longer panel of the Afternoon Tea DP. The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink and I have sewed around it with a dark brown thread.
Next I have punched out a couple of flowers with some SU Punches - Boho Blossoms, 5-Petal Flower. I have distressed them on the corners and raised them with Stampin Dimensionals. At last I have added some Silver Brads according to the Sketch.
Hope you like it and *thank you* Bonnie for this fun Challenge!!! Please make sure you check out all the ladies from the LSP DT and see what they have come up with!!! You can find them all on the right hand side of my blog.
I almost forgot to mention that you can play along!!! If you do play - please list you card on SCS under LPSDTC02, as well as *littlepapershop* no spaces!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
Have fun and ~TFL~!!!
