Simple stitching on a ‘sweet’ card


STVPF19 FTL48 sweet day

Since I’ve been on a kick for stamping the clean & simple style for a while now, I’m happy I discovered a blog that celebrates that style (thanks, Charmaine!) all the time!

This is the Fall to Layout #48 which is a fun round card!  I ended up combining 3 challenges for this card, actually!  Another is for StampTV’s Potluck Friday challenge {stvpf19} hosted by one of our center stage spotlight gals, Pam to go digital-to use our digital papers and make a non-standard sized card.  I chose to use the digital paper designed by Rupa Shevde, illustrator of the new 100% Sweet stamp set, which is what I used for the sentiment since that’s the only stamping on my card (I omitted part of the stamp which usually says birthday-to make it a more general card)!   The last challenge is Gina’s sewing challenge {svttc19} did you check out her videos on sewing?!  I think I need to get that sewing machine some day!  The one I have is a micro-mini and it only does straight stitching – I’m missing out on a lot not being able to do more stitches!!  Oh well…for the meantime, I will try to be content with what I have instead of wishing I had more!!

I finished off my card with some punched mini flowers with the new self-adhesive nail heads in the centers!  I love this card, it reminds me of yummy sherbet ice cream!!

Hope YOU Have a sweet day!!
