We start challenge #9 today over at The Heart Desires. I am particularly enamored with the inspiration photos as I've been doing various crafts since I was wee; that's just how my family rolled. I'm talking quilting, hand sewing, machine sewing, embroidery, crosstitch, jewelry making, knitting, yarn dyeing. You name it, I've probably dabbled.
So when I picked up the Neat and Tangled hoop die, I thought of the Avery Elle set a friend had (thanks for the loan, Katie!). The set reminded me of a baby quilt I had once hand embroidered. Anyhoo, the card came together quickly after that.
Chose the fab vintage flower paper and coordinating ombre ink. Decided to cut the hoop out of balsa wood. Gold foil hoop knob led to gold sequins and gold hearts. Added a strip of glitter washi because the sequins were lonely. Popped up the sentiment panel on foam. Also impressed the panel with linen texture.
