ETA:  This card was chosen as Inkspirations Challenge Winner!!!!

I'm so excited to be the March Guest Designer for Totally Stampalicious!  It's going to be a great month!  What a great honor it is to be working with the talented Totally Stampalicious Design Team!

This week's challenge is to Try A New Technique - something you've never tried before.  I chose to use sewing.  I always admire the gorgeous cards that are made using sewing but I have NEVER been brave enough to try it on paper.  So I pulled my sewing machine out and went to work.  I'm really glad I tried this technique.  It was a challenge for me and now I know that I can do it!  As you can see I still need some practice but I did it and it was FUN!   This card is 5 x 5 square card.
 

The image and sentiment are from the Attitude Ruby clear rubber stamp set from Totally Stampalicious. 

I used the layout from this week's Friday Sketchers Challenge and the color combo from this week's Inkspirations color challenge.


I'm also including this card in the following challenges:

Catch the Bug: Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks:  Stitches
Friday Sketchers Challenge:  Sketch Challenge 
Inkspirations:  Color Challenge #60 (So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Whisper White)




 




Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
