While I was going through the challenges for today I read about Katie on the Color Throwdown. I like the Color Throwdown for lots of reasons, including that they have a fantastic design team so that every week there's lots of eye candy to see. But today I like them even more because they're doing something extra which is really sweet. They've asked us to make our cards for Katie. Katie's a fellow stamper on Splitcoast and she's ailing. You can read about the challenge and Katie here.
My card colors deviate a little from the challenge colors, usually some deviation is accepted so I'm hoping they won't mind my changes. Instead of the Early Espresso and Melon Mambo , I'm substituting Kraft and some pink for the Melon.
The layout if from this week's Mojo Madness. I flipped it around a little to to acommodate the stamp.
This heart charm is so sweet but it's tiny so I'm giving you a close up view.
Over on the MFTWSC thread on SCS we've been talking about sewing so I decided I would get my machine out. Some people have trouble with sewing circles. My advice is to use a zig zag stitch because it allows you more room for fudging. Take your time, it's not a race. AND if you're getting frustrated, STOP. If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong.
And let's not forget the inside. Because it's so pretty, I repeated using the Martha Stewart Hydrangea border punch.
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Fairy
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Pumice Stone
paper - SU Kraft cs for base and mats; SU Soft Sky and Kiwi Kiss dp
miscellaneous - heart charm; Divine Twine; SU Crochet Trim; bling; Hero Arts Sparkle Gems Hearts and Flowers; Martha Stewart Hudrangea border punch; Cotton Candy Pink Sparkly fluff (on the heart on the dress); Polar White flower soft (on wings); round corner punch; white opaque pen (on ribbon on dress); Spellbinder's Label Eight; Sulky variegated green thread in sewing machine
