Our Creative Corner Challenge

Happy Saturday...

Thanks so much for stopping by. I have a special card to share for Our Creative Corner challenge. Cindy Haffner is our host for June and for her last week hosting she has picked a challenge to use old Basic Grey paper.

Our Creative Corner would LOVE it if you could play along PLUS if you download you card to either the OCCC Gallery or Our Creative Corner, you will be entered to win a $15 gift certificate from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. You have until July 4th to download your card.

For my card, I really did not know which paper to use. After a while, I finally decided to use patterned paper from the "Blush" line. It is probably my favorite but then again I say that with ALL Basic Grey paper! LOL :)

I started with the Soft Sky carousel notes by Stampin' Up! Just to age it a bit, I sponged close to cocoa around all of the edges. I layered it with whisper white, then some patterned paper by Basic Grey. For extra detail, I sewed the edges and layered a piece of embossed vellum. For a little extra fun, I created this fun pocket using my scalloped punches. To finish off the card, I added some pretty butterflies using some punches from the Martha Stewart line.


Thanks so much for stopping by and if you get a chance, please take look at the other fun samples at Our Creative Corner.

Beautiful, Jennifer!...I picked the Blush line too, hehe! I love that you added stitching. I can't stitch at ALL, so I'm always jealous of cards made with real stitching. Great, GREAT, card!

Very pretty!
I'm just wondering how you sewed in such a perfect even circle??
Ive tried and no matter how fast or slow I go, I still end up with at least one point while turning where it's uneven.
Any tips? :)
