I think I'll send this card to my mother, because it reminds me of when she taught my sister and I to sew. I combined two challenges on this--Mojo Monday sketch 176 and Stampin' Royalty Challenge #57, to use the colors Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy, and Baja Breeze. As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of buttons from the Sweet Buttons Embosslit for that fun border.
Once I had those, I wanted to use the coordinating Sweet Stitches rub-ons, since I love the patterned girl. I added the ruffled Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon at the top of the card just for fun...but then had no idea what sentiment to use. Kiran came to my rescue when she brought over Word Play, which is a fantastic set of big and bold sentiments for all occasions.
I added Crumb Cake and Whisper White to the three colors from the challenge, and I like this color combination so much that I've already used it for some non-traditional (that is, non-pink-and-frilly) Valentines. Stay tuned for those!
