Marjorie's Color Challenge #41

Wow, it's almost been a week since my last post...Yikes! :D Sorry everyone for the lack of posting, just trying to get things situated on the home front. I had a very relaxing Thanksgiving and I was able to get my Christmas tree up and all my decorations as well...so relieved!!! We did do some shopping on Black Friday and Saturday. We didn't get up early and we still were able to get everything we wanted...how cool is that! :D

Stamps: Partygirlabella (Stamping Bella) & Annotations (CTMH) Paper: Caprice dp & CTMH CS Ink: Brilliance, CTMH Markers, Twilight Ink & Sorbet Ink Accents: Paper Piercer, Cirlce Nestie, CB Swiss Dots, White Daisy Flowers & Twilight Brad (CTMH)

Well here's is my card for Marjorie's Color Challenge. Marjorie chose the colors Twilight, Crystal Blue, Sorbet & Creme Brulee, what an awesome color combo! :D I have ALOT o f birthday's coming up in the next few months so I'm getting a head start on the cards! :D Wanna know something crazy...I hand stitch this card!!! I really love the look of it, so I'm thinking about asking for a sewing machine for Christmas. I know it would be ten times easier if I had one. Well I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday and I'll be back tomorrow for Prettie Thursday!!! :D

Jenn, your card is so cute! And even more impressive, is that you HAND STITCHED it!! Looks fabulous! I'm gonna have to try that technique. I have a sewing machine, but I just don't like pulling that monster out all the time. This method is right up my alley. TFS! Glad to see you back and I hope all is well.
Blessings~

This is too cute! I love it! But wow, that must of taken a bit of time to sew all the way around it! Your card turned out awesome though!

Jenn, I can not believe you handstitched this?! Awesome! As we say in NC, Bless your heart!

Girl, get yourself a Janome Mini Sewing machine if you just want one for cards. You will not be able to live without it.

Love the card, by the way! :)
