Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #5! - Stitch It Up!!

Today's post is a doubly fun one because my card meets two awesome challenges!!!

Firstly, today is our 5th challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge blog and our hostess this week is talented gal, Niki Estes!! She has asked us to whip out our sewing machines....or our white gel pens if you wanna do some faux stitching....and Stitch It Up!!

ALSO, KKStamps is this month's featured sponsor over at the happenin' Crazy4Challenges challenge blog!!! Woohoo!! Their challenge this week is to make an easel card! I must admit, I'd never made one of these babies until Vicki told me about them! It was really quite easy and what a charming creation to give to someone!! It's like a little piece of art to display!!



So I decided to use my girl Charlotte and I coloured her up using the colours from this pretty My Mind's Eye paper. Sorry, I didn't keep track of the markers this time....shame on me. I stitched up the dp onto the orange cardstock (in case my sewing machine ate my paper, it wouldn't ruin the whole card if I just sew a piece of it...hehe.). I added a strip across the middle, some prima flowers with glitter brads and then attached the whole thing to the base. I sponged around the edge of Charlotte and matted her twice, then pop dotted her.



For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments on a die cut and attached it. Then did up a little button/linen thread bow combo to keep the main part of the card up for display!! Pretty, huh?

So there are two fun challenges for you to play with this week...stitching and an easel card and both challenges could win ya some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Woohoo!!

Well, I'm off to work all day at the library today. Hope you have a better day than I will! *sigh*
