Designing DIVAs First Challenge for 2010

yes! I'm doing it....catching up on some challenges! This one was just for the Designing Diva's and the challenge is to sew on a card - real or faux!  Well, our DIVA sister Peggy has this "humongous" dog that apparently has eaten the sewing machines of several of the Divas...so we just "had" to resort to faux stitchin'  (can you tell we were having fun with this LOL)....so when I think of sewing on a card...I always reach for my trusty Inspiration Mosaic stamp (from Gina K).....

used stash dp from SU, and from GinaK the "Lovely Shelf" set by Nina, Vivid's purple ink and yellow flowers from embellishment stash drawer!

3 day weekend!! woooo hooooo!
hope everyone enjoys it that has the 3 days off!
blessings to all,

Fantastic faux stitching, I'm never good at that so I've kinda gave up. Have a wonderful weekend.

Totally awesome card GF! Your dp is one of my favs! I don't have a 3day weekend :0( That's what happens when your self employed! LOL!

Linda, totally awesome card. I love how you made it look like patchwork with the different papers and the "stitching". Tthe paper pieced vase is a really great touch to tie it all together.

The colors on your card nicely match each other. Sewing different colors togather brings out your beautiful embellishments. Wonderful way to shine!
