Sew Perfect

Hi everyone! Thank you for the sweet comments about my Moxie Fab post. The kind words made me feel all mushy inside. :)

Everyone's busy, so let's get right to it. It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge! Here are the colors:

And here's what I came up with:

I used the stitched boxes stamp from our sponsor this week, Jenni Bowlin, like a button card. Instead of buttons, I substituted layered hearts. I printed off some digital papers from Two Peas, die cut the hearts, and sewed two hearts together for each square.

Here's a close-up of the card:

I layered some vintage sewing patterns I have to fit with the sewing theme, and finished the card off with a sentiment I made in Photoshop.

Admittedly, I found these colors hard, but it's always good to challenge yourself, right?

If you want to play along, the winner will receive a prize from Jenni Bowlin:

You can link up your creations HERE. It's a two-week challenge this time. :)

  11. Wow, this is so different from anything you've made before. I really love how you used the colours which would be difficult for me. It's fabulous how you incorporated a sewing pattern into your card!

  12. I found the colour palette difficult to work with too! I just love how you used the colours to create such a gorgeous card!
