Two Challenges all wrapped up in one Tilda

This card was created for two challenges that I found while visiting some of my favorite blogs. The first challenge from Stamp with Fun has the theme "stitch". Since I've recently found that I absolutely love sewing on my cards, this was a perfect fit!! I adjusted my sewing machine back to straight stitching instead of zig-zag for this card. Next time, I think I'll try sewing with something other than white thread!

The second challenge is from Friday Sketchers. This is challenge #90 and was designed by Beatrix from Germany. I loved the look of this sketch!

I had purchased a fabulous 9000-piece Cosmo Cricket scrapbooking kit from Tuesday Mornings a few weeks ago and I have just been waiting to open up all of the paper and embellishments. The papers are just Gorgeous! The kit included two 8x8 scrapbooks, paper, chipboard, ribbon, buttons, brads...and of course everything coordinates together. The vintage colors are fabulous: dusty pinks, blues, reds and greens!!!!!

The Designer paper for this card came from this beautiful Cosmo Cricket scrapbooking kit.
The Red card stock is from Bazzill, and the green card stock is Mellow Moss from Stampin' Up - a perfect match to the paper. The little chipboard flower and button were also included in the kit. The sentiment is from the new clear mount set "Whimsical Words" by Stampin' Up! I think the font on this set is beautiful!

Here are my Copic Colors: R000, R20, R22, BG10, C1, E000, E00, E25, E31, E33, E35, E47, E50, E53

Thanks for stopping by,
Julie
