My Sheri Crafts 120

Time for another new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts!  Design Team sister, Sue, had asked us to create any project with a sewing theme.  At first, I was actually going to "sew" something like a small gift bag or even a Cricut cover.  Instead, I decided to make a card because I fell in love with the picture I found of a young girl sewing her clothes

The quote "I'm not buying that, I can make that!" is something (I believe) all crafters have said at least once in their life time.  I know I say it quite often and so does my mother... the one who taught me how to sew in the first place... and I just know you have too!

The stitching around the card is hand stitched using DMC cross-stitch floss.  The white flower is made from the same lace trimming around the card... yes, I sewed that by hand too!  LOL!

Thanks for looking!

Now... it's your turn to create something spectacular and join us over at  My Sheri Crafts

Card size: 4.25" x 5.5"

Supplies used:

Papers from K&Company
Image from William-Adolphe Bouguereau
Lace given to me by Design Team sister, Charlotte
Fiskars flower punch (for the pink roses... 3 layers each)
Spellbinders for the flourish
Quotes are computer generated
Lots of inking around the edges
