Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #111

When I saw this card sketch challenge on the Taylored Expressions Blog , I knew right away that I wanted to create a card. I was also inspired by a "Stitch With Your Stamps" challenge over at A Walk Down Memory Lane. So, I combined the two.

I've sewn on my cards with my sewing machine many times and I've hand stitched a few times, but I've never used my stamps for this. I had to go through my stamp collection to find just the right stamp. Surprisingly enough I found quite a few that would work with this technique. I used a Hero Arts flower stamp for this card.

I've always been intrigued in quilling. Some time ago, I picked up a quilling tool and a sampler pack of paper. I tried it out for this card with just some easy circles and I think I want to experiment some more. I love the look of quilling.

Here's my take on the sketch:

Sewing on cards is so much fun. The lace is such a nice accent.
