Stitched With Love

How about another sewing themed card from the New Releases at Flourishes this month?  This image from the Stitched for You Set in particular just popped out at me from the set.  I love the little tomato pin cushion with the strawberry hanging down.  And those fat quarters of fabric!  AH!  Don't get me started.  I know that fabric for a sewer or quilter is like designer paper for a card maker.  Bliss!

I colored and paper pieced the image with these new papers from the For the Record 123 Create Kit.  The top and bottom fabrics in the stack are paper pieced (from the kit papers) and the middle two coloured with copics.  Then I've accented with ribbons from the kit and a sweet little pin that also come in the 123 Kit.  The image is also cut out with the coordinating Silhouette Cut File from Flourishes.  It gives such a polished finish to images.  

The sentiment is stamped with Memento Tangelo Ink and Memento Love Letter Ink.

Busy day ahead for me.  My mom and I are painting my daughter's new room!  Catch ya later!
