A *Sew Suite* Friend

This card is just the opposite of the last card I posted. That one I couldn't wait to post, this one may have never made it to Blogland had it not been for me and my dear friend Laura standing around chatting in my craft room. This card was finished but set off to the side because I just didn't think it was as good as the original. I guess it doesn't necessarily have to be...because someone sure liked it. Laura got it as her very belated Birthday card.

Last spring, I saw saw this fabulous card by Heather Klump. I loved the design and the colors that she chose. So...I set out one afternoon with my stamp pads and a few Netflix movies ready to play with colors. Of course, I wanted to put my spin on it, so I chose a few of my favorites to work with: Perfect Plum, Rose Red and Baja Breeze.

The spools were stamped with Stazon and colored with Blender Pens and Ink Pads. I love the soft look that it adds. A piece of gorgeous gray ribbon was added to the mannequin...which kicks up the cuteness factor quite a bit.

Have you had that card that 'almost didn't make the cut'? I'd love to hear your story...be sure to share. Thanks so much for stopping by!
