Wish Big!

Look - I'm back with ANOTHER card! Sure enough, I was able to sneak in some stamping time tonight...makes me one happy momma!

I wanted to do another card for Joanne's "Sew Krafty" challenge. I took my inspiration from Dawn McVey - she works magic with her color combos and CAS layouts. I've had this stamp set for a few weeks but haven't had time to get it inky until last night; I just LOVED the font and size when I used it, so I knew I wanted to use it again tonight. The inside says "celebrate with style".

I stamped polka dots in Hibiscus Burst; layered with a strip of Aqua Mist & Hibiscus Burst card stock...and then I SEWED...yes, I really did. I know, breathe deep, again, let's all breathe deep! LOL! I rarely sew, but I love the whimsical feel of the stitching, totally random. What do you think?

I added a couple of jewels above each "i" and tied on some twill ribbon. I hope you enjoyed another Sew Krafty card. Thanks for stopping by; I really appreciate when you visit! Hugs, ~M.

Adorable card! And want to know a secret, I always hold my breath while I sew! LOL! I don't know why, but I do... so I have to pause a lot when I'm sewing or else.....
