FTTC108– SEW Pretty!!

 

SONY DSC

 

Happy Tuesday everyone~

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC108) . Cindy Haffner is our challenge host and she is challenging us to *SEW* :) You can use real stitches or faux…which ever you prefer. Can’t wait your *SEW* pretty creation!!

 

I used Butterflies & Blossoms set for the images and sentiment. The flower image & sentiment were stamped on the white circle mat. I stamped the extra flower image & butterflies on the scrap and colored all images with Copic markers. Then I trimmed the ones on the scraps and adhered on the main mat.

For the SEW-ing challenge, I used my neglected sewing machine and zig-zag stitched the lace trim, embossed border and pleated ribbon. To finish off, I embellished with swirl pearls to look like the butterfly’s trail.

The sketch is come from Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO181) and the color combo was inspired from CR84FN Color Challenge 18 (CR84FN18) .
