Sewing Friendships

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 207 - Whoistracy. I enjoyed browsing through Tracy's gallery and landed on this CAKE ON FIRE card of hers and decided this was the one to CASE. I changed the layout, colors and theme by using this brand new just released darling set from MARKS FINEST PAPERS called SEW WHAT?
I stamped the spool of thread in Momento Cantelope then colored with copics. I cut it out and adhered the threaded needle to the spool. This is attached to pretty in pink cs cut in an oval shape with my Fiskars oval punch. The yellow cs was cut and embossed with Nesties Beaded Oval then I colored just the beaded tops with BG15 but it ended up turning a green color :(
I tied some so saffron ribbon across. The bottom panel is white cs stamped in riding hood red, old olvie, pretty in pink and bermuda bay with the thimble then I colored with coordinating copics.
My layout is from Saturday's OUR CREATIVE CORNER Sketch. The sentiment was stamped in riding hood red then matted on pretty in pink.
My dp (American Crafts - Crafts Fair) just arrived last night in the mail and I could not wait to use it. My bottom panel was my attempt to simulate that same type of dp. OH well one day. LOL
