You Make Me Smile :)

Thursday, January 5, 2012

Hello Friends, and Happy Thursday! I won't keep you but a sec with this little card I'm adding to the notecard set I'm working on.
Check out that stitched border. I finally used the sculputure stitch successfully on my sewing machine! Remember, back in November it got a little wonky on me. :)

The little orange sparkly dots are Stickles. I can't say too many times: I Love Stickles! Well, I really wanted to put them all over that blue lattice border, too, but I refrained, instead just putting teeny tiny dots on the points of the sentiment layer die cut.

I'm really enjoying the CR84FN45 colors and the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #149 was wonderful as the layout. It was perfect for making this card flat for mailing, and also so it would fit in the dvd tin when it's all finished. I think I'll be able to get two flat cards, two dimensional cards, and the envelopes in the tin without squishing anything too much.

Thanks for visiting, and have a super day!

I love these colors and how you're incorporating them into your set. Very warm and rich and earthy. Colorful without being over-bright. I'm such a fan of Stickles, too. You never have to worry about them brushing off. And so many fabulous colors! You did an amazingly perfect job on your Stickles dots!
