Dawn's Color Challenge #14


Once again this week I was able to participate in Dawn's weekly color challenge. This one wasn't too hard for me as I LOVE all these colors! Notice the buttons in her inspiration photo? Yummy, huh? The Plum Pudding ones will be released on the 15th through Papertrey Ink.



I FINALLY was able to get my new-to-me sewing machine out and put it to some use! I had to read the instructions on how to get everything started, but I was able to put some fun stitching on this one! I also made a fun faux flower, although I should've put some leaves on it somehow. Oops. :( I did use a Scarlet Jewel button for the centerpiece.

I think it took longer to set up the bobbin and get everything threaded than it did to make this card! ha!




Supplies: (All PTI unless noted)
Paper - Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding, Scarlet Jewel, Vintage Cream
Ink - Vintage Cream
Stamps - Mega Mixed Messages
Other - Scarlet Jewel Vintage Button, Rustic Jute Button Twine, Cream Thread, Sewing Machine

Ripped cardstock and button ~ FABULOUS!!! Way to rock Dawn's color combo.

VERY pretty!! Ditto on the sewing machine - that's the longest part of the whole thing. And then when it gets tangled, you have to do it all over again.
