June Challenge

Love You Card by Kimmarie

Posted by Picasa
Design Team Member Kimmaire submitted this card for the June challenge. The challenge is to stitch on a layout, card or anything scrappy. She said, "I chose to create a card with my new stamps. My scrap room was a bit of a mess so I didn't have time to dig out my sewing machine. I decided to hand stitch with floss. My first time, so I guess this could have fit in with May's "Out of the Box" challenge as well. I actually enjoyed the hand stitching and will definitely be doing it more. I did clean my room finally so I will be taking out my sewing machine to stitch on a layout or two for the rest of the month's projects. This card is made with "A Moment In Time" stamp set and "A Bit of Burlap" from the {ippity} Spring 2010 Collection. I think I may give this card to my husband for our anniversary in August. (maybe I will make it in another color, he isn't a big fan of pink. lol)

  2. I love the simple elegance of your color choices.

  3. Great card - I especially love the sentiment!

    And yes, pink might not be the best color for your hubby. If I were to do it I'd have to do it in sinnged deck! :)
