Hello everyone! Hope you have all been having a fabulous week. We had a freak snow storm this morning. It has stopped snowing and hailing and now it's starting warm up a little. No snow left on the ground thank goodness but it was awfully scary taking the kids to school with slushy west coast snow on the road and no snow tires. Unfortunately I don't know if our apricot tree is going to produce much fruit this year. It started blooming only a few days ago. I guess we'll find out this summer.
Anyhow....on with the card. This was my practice run for the Embellish Magazine publication call. I find it takes me a couple of cards to get into the colours. I decided to use TESC107 as a starting point. A fun sketch for fun colours right? I used black cotton thread to chain all the buttons together. I tried to go with a more whimsical approach to that; any button threaded every which way I could think of. These colours were perfect for a birthday card with a paper pieced cupcake. I think I got the colour balance right? What I like most about this card is the black zigzag stitching. The pink panel might be missing something?...
Hopefully I'll have more to show you this weekend. Happy Crafting.
