I've beem AWOL again! Things have been hectic here as we had a new arrival in our household this week - a gorgeous puppy called Rufus!! He is adorable but very time consuming at the moment and I am struggling to do any crafting at all.
A perfect challenge for me as I love using my sewing machine on my cards!
I made a Birthday card using some really pretty new papers I bought from MME Lost and Found collection -Madison Avenue. I used sentiment stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps - Say it Loud set.
I decided to try and make some roses from seam binding and I have to say I am really pleased with how they turned out, I used some pearl beads from an old bracelet my daughter didn't want anymore and then just loosley twisted the rose pink seam binding into a rose shape securing with the odd stitch as I went. These were really quick to make and used hardly any seam binding for each rose, and also very inexpensive. I'll definitely be making more of these.
I finished off with a double length of pink divine baker's twine and a few rose dew drops and of course the required stitching!
Why not pop over and see see the Design team's fabulous samples, you might be inspired to join in with the challenge - remember the stitching can also be faux so you don't need to have a sewing machine. Or maybe try a bit of handstitching?
Thanks so much for popping by, I'll be back with another challenge card soon.
