Not SEW happy :(

Uuugh {frustrated grimace} My sewing machine was a little sick yesterday while I was trying to sew this card.  The thread kept breaking. I tried re-threading my machine, releasing tension, etc....but nothings seemed to work. It all turned out great for me except that stitching.

This card incorporates three challenges: Crazy 4 Challenges , Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketches , and my own personal footware inspired challenge.

The Colours I chose were Blue Bayou, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Gold.  The Gold textured paper and dp I picked up from that Big Box Store that shall not be named {wink}.  I think I'm going to have to pick up for of that gold paper.  It's so rich and soft.  I'll be using the dp for my next mojo challenge.  It is such beautiful paper and can be taken in larger doses.  I also used champagne paint shimmer in the center of the stamped flowers.

Thanks for popping by for a visit and I encourage you to try out all the challenges yourself.  The girls over at Crazy4Challenges and Sweet Sunday Sketches are all very supportive and so talented.  I hope you are all having a fabulous week and enjoying some fabulous fall weather.  I love taking long, deep breaths in the cool, crisp air.  It's refreshing and relaxing especially as the crazy stress back to school stuff turns into the crazy holiday season stuff.

Paper:  Blue Bayou, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Gold, floral dp
Ink:  Blue Bayou
Accessories:  Sewing, gold flower brads, Champagne Paint Shimmer
Stamps:  For all you do

  2. Your card looks wonderful, despite the "technical difficulties" :) I'm always amazed at how frustrated I can become with inanimate objects, like a sewing machine:) Great job!

  3. It's gorgeous, even for all the challenges your sewing machine added, you really mastered it. Love that color combination...the gold is wonderful. Might have to search for some of that!
    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!
