Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so glad not to be having to go to work today OR tomorrow!! And tonight Kent and I are going over to Anne (and Jay) Harmon's house (a fellow stamper - jdmommy on SCS) for dinner. I made today's card for two challenges and I made it for Mother's Day as a friend asked me to make one for her to send to her daughter-in-law. She has 5 sons and is so happy to have a girl in the family now! (and she's given her a granddaughter as well!)
I stamped the panel with the Pin Stripe Backgrounder Stamp from Waltzingmouse using Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and then I cut it with my ever present Stitched Mat Rectangle die from Lil' Inkers Design. I added a piece of cloth tape, wrapping it around the ends of the panel. I looped some twine in loose circles then taped part of it to the panel and added the Pretty Prima Flower over the taped area. The sentiment is from a retired PTI set (you can order it from the Vault for $48!) Women of Life that I stamped on a Die namics Sentiment Strip from MFT. I added some Lemonade Blend sequins from Avery Elle and home made enamel dots that I made by melting Perler Beads (see instructions here). I love the fanciful look the looped twine gives the card!
And here are the two challenges that inspired my design:
