Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is
I am a big fan of using sketches so my card for this week is based on
here is my card...hope you like it!
It is almost time for the kids to head back to school..... mixed feeling about that for sure
For this week's Sew~So Simple Challenge, I did one of my favorite things~ add lots of machine stitching to my Back to School card. I started out my card with Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added several layers of pattern paper from My Minds Eye~Playdate paper pack. Then using my sewing machine I added a few different machine stitches to several of my layers. Since I was following a sketch for my card, the perfect added embellishment all came from The Kraft Outlet. I added some Cream Twill Tape, which I also ran a line of machine stitching through. Then I took one of the Chipboard Buttons, covered it with some matching pattern paper and then using my One Eighth Inch Hole Punch, re punched the holes to add some Brown and Blue Bakers Twine.
Finally I die cut some numbers from My Creative Time~Stitched 4x6 Journal Die in coordinating colors and added them to my "paper". To finish off my card I stamped my "Back to School" sentiment using My Creative Time~My Teacher Rocks! stamp set.
So there you have it....my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
