You're a Stitch... 31

Mona Pendleton | Friday, August 10, 2012 @ 6:45 AM | , ,

Hi there! I'm so happy the weekend is here! No big plans other than putting on some miles on my bike and getting ahead on some crafty projects :) I made this card for a 3 and 1 color challenge on Splitcoaststampers which we were to use 3 neutrals and 1 color.
I layered a few doilies made using Die-namics Decorative Doily DUO dies. I made a wooden spool of thread using the spool die from the Die-namics Sew Nifty and Stamp Set and a piece of Balsa wood then I stamped it with the die contained in the set. I finished it off with a rolled rose made using a die from the Die-namics MINI Rolled Rose set and a piece of My Favorite Felt Bubblegum.
Thanks so much for looking! I hope you have a great day / evening where ever you may be!
Be Sweet :)

MFT Supplies Used:
Stamps: Die-namics Sew Nifty and Stamp Set
Dies: Die-namics Decorative Doily DUO, Die-namics Faux Crochet Border, Die-namics MINI Rolled Rose, Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die & Stamp Set
Felt: My Favorite Felt Bubblegum

So pretty Mona, I love the neutrals with the pink! Those doilies are gorgeous too and such a clever idea using balsa wood for the spool. You have hurt my bank account as after seeing all your cute little felt roses and flowers I have had a splurge on the Die-namics dies! Yes, I'm totally blaming you :)

Lord help me:) Yes a bit of an exaggeration but I already spotted this handmade gem on Facebook and now I am here. The use of yarn; layered doilies, the colors. It's the kind of card that made me sigh and think; I don't know what inspired her but she always makes something that makes me drooling. Mona you are so talented. I'd better let my jaw check; it has been hittng the floor several times this past week:)
