C4C99, ODBDSLC71 Sewn with Love.....

Happy weekend everyone!

Hope you are having some fun plans??? It's super hot here in the South and I think I will stamp my little heart out today, since it's impossible to be outside!!! I hate to say it but I'm ready for some cooler temps...LOL!!!

I'm happy to be on my *regular* stampin' schedule again with the Crazy 4 Challenges and the ODBD Shining Light Challenge. I surely missed hanging out with all my friends!!!

My card today, features both challenges....first the C4C99 ~ Create a *Shaped Card*. Second, the ODBDSLC71 ~ *Notions or think Seamstress*. Think seamstress (stitching, buttons, seam binding, pins etc.) You can create any project you like as long as it follows the theme. Adding only Ribbons, lace or lace or ribbon bows does not count.



I decided to use the Spellbinder Dies ~ Label 18Standard LG Circle and Blossom for my design. The beautiful quote is from the brand spankin' new August Release Set called ~ Sewn with Love. I added some *faux stitching* to my Kraft CS using a White Gel Pen. Next I embellished my card with some Lace Trim, the Red/White Gingham Ribbon, a Button with some Scrapper's Floss, a Flower Button with a Silver Pearl, some Prima Flowers and the two Heart Pins.

Hope you have a chance to join us for this weeks challenges??? For more inspiration please stop by the rest of the ODBD team ~ Sabrina, Francie, Chris, Lori and Pat. Please make sure to stop by the C4C Blog for all the fun shaped cards the *Crazies* made.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today!  Have a fabulous weekend and stay cool :) !!!

                                                                    Hugs, ~Silke~
