Wish Big

DSCF6440 I had so much fun yesterday with combining challenges, I decided to do a few more today!

The JUGS Challenge #15, to use sewing on your card:

JUGS15

For the sketch, I used Taylor's Sketch Challenge #97:

TESC97

And a challenge from a new blog, Stampin' Royalty, to make a birthday card! So here is my take on the three:

DSCF6439

I can never have too many birthday cards! I used some of the new Sweet Pea DP from SU, which has so many fun colors and mix-and-match patterns, it is a breeze to coordinate everything. The cupcakes from the hostess set The More the Merrier were colored with markers as well as paper-pieced and glittered, of course! I did some faux stitching (I realize I wasn't 100% true to the sketch here as I look at it--oops!) along the sides, "sewing" down the little hearts as I went along. A couple grosgrain ribbons added the final touch. I can't wait to give this to someone!! Thanks for visiting today!!!

  • Stamps: The More the Merrier, Short & Sweet
  • Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, WW, Sweet Pea DP
  • Ink: Stazon, Taken with Teal
  • Acc: Nesties, Piercing Tool & Mat, White Gel Pen, Grosgrain Ribbons, 3-Heart Punch, Dimensionals

Oh how cute! Love the color combination so much! I don't think any of us use enough orange and this looks great with the blue. The layout and your stitching are fab!
