Sew Sorry

Happy Monday folks, 


I'm here with a card for the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.  


Kim is our hostess and she's chosen the theme "BELATED BIRTHDAY".  We're asking you to create a card which MUST include a sentiment indicating that the card is for a belated birthday.

Here's my card ...




Cross stitch stamps are from Stampin' Up as are the strips of card. I've used the colours Real Red and Lucky Limeade.  The cross stitch embossing folder is Tim Holtz.


I've tried to emulate the look of washi tape with the embossed strips and sentiment.





Our sponsor for this challenge is Milk Coffee Digital Stamps 
and also Sir Stampalot








I'm also making this a second entry for the challenges over at 
Addicted to CAS - "Embossing" and
CAS-ual Fridays CFC86 - "Long and Short"


Thanks for coming to visit, hope you find the time to joing in with our Crafty Cardmakers Challenge.

Have a great week.

Take care

Suze xx

Love that sewing stamp and so fitting for you ....though I thought you meant real sewing when u said you wanted to do more sewing! hee he x

That stamp is so effective I actually thought you had done a little bit of cross-stitching on your card.
Do you know it was cross-stitching that led me to where I am today - I have a large project that I never completed because stamping stole my heart!
Fabulous colours and amazing composition.
Hope you are staying safe and warm.
Wishes
Lynne

Love the cross stitch stamp and the clever design of the card and also how you managed to combine three challenges with this beauty.
