A new color combo for me...




I haven't put this combo together before (Sweet Leaf, Juniper and Twilight), but I likey! I saw a covered notepad on Debbie Olson's blog here and wanted to recreate it into a card using my CTMH products. So this is my version of her project, turned into an 8" x 3 1/2" card. I'm happy with it, other than I had to draw my stitched lines on because there is something seriously wrong with my sewing machine. It's probably just the operator! Or perhaps it may be from trying to sew through glue and all the sticky build up on my needle! lol But even after cleaning, checking it over, breaking a needle, checking it and trying it out again, it still didn't want to sew properly. It seems I only pull my machine out for my scrapbooking lately, so I'll have to try to stich without gluing it first next time. So anyways, for today I had to give up on sewing my stitches and resort to my white gel pen and a black journal pen. C'est la vie!

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Damask Tiles, Say It In Style, Tiny Typewriter Alphabet, Many Thanks, and Intrinsic Backgrounds stamp sets; Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Twilight, and White Daisy CS; Juniper, Sweet Leaf, Twilight, and Black inks; Signo Uniball White gel pen (SU); Black journal pen (CM); Circle Coluzzle; 2" circle punch (Fiskars); Make-up sponge (other); 3D foam tape (other).

Oh my goodness! I would have NEVER in a million years thought to put these colors together but they are absolutely scrumptious! The fact that the artist is so talented just makes it all the more yummy.
