2sketches4you and a new technique



I finally have some time to play today so I am going back and creating some of yesterday's challenges. The sketch is from 2Sketches4You and the New Technique Challenge from SCS.

I just got a Janome for Christmas and so the technique challenge was a perfect chance to play with my new toy--paper quilting. It has taken me alittle bit of practice and patience to learn how to sew on paper but I love the look. My card today used up the last bit of my Razzleberry Lemonade DP--I will miss it!! Before anyone asks about which embossing folder I used--I didn't!! It is another of the pre-embossed square cards from Micheals. I just love these--10 different patterns, 4 of each, and the envelopes for under $10 and if you use a coupon--fantastic deal!! The only stamping that I did on this card was the sentiment "welcome baby" from the Stampin Up! set called Short and Sweet. The ribbon finished off the sketch and the charm was added to finish it off. A card is just not complete without alittle embellishment!!
