Yesterday afternoon, I went over to my friend Lori‘s to stamp. We try to get together once a month or so. I worked on three cards while there and will share one of them today. I need to add some finishing touches to the other two before I can share them. I actually added the finishing touch, the strawberry embellishment, to this card today. I made the strawberry embellishment out of some red felt and black and green embroidery floss. I wish I had some green felt to use for the leaves instead of the floss, but alas I did not. I think I might have made it a tad big, but oh well.
The sketch is The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #122, which also added a spin of fabulous fibers. I think my felt strawberry counts as fabulous fibers. I’m also entering this card in the Hambo Hoedown Challenge #29 to use scoring. I scored the blue circle panel with a graph paper like look; although the cross scores are faint in the picture. In addition, there is the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to make a food & drink creation, which I think strawberries count as edible, except to maybe those poor people who are allergic to strawberries. One last challenge: Stamp Something‘s challenge this week is something to say thank you.
