The first challenge at the Nook's Card Shark contest (apparently our first card was challenge zero) ;) is based on the card game, Phase 10. Apparently you build on each hand you're dealt until you finish the 10 phases of the game. Can you tell I've never played? ;) Well, our challenge is to make a card in 3 phases. With certain criteria to meet, we have to create a base, photograph it and then embellish it in any way we like and finally photograph the finished card and post it to their blog.
Paper: MME, Flower: Prima, Cabon: Papier Valise, Sentiment: Authentique, Other: hand stitching, ribbon
Sometimes a piece of pattern paper is so pretty I don't want to do much to it. I stitched over the ribbon on the dress form and added some stitching to frame it out on the sides. I cut out the middle of the flower and added that cabon because I thought it was a little too much pink. Added a couple loops of the twine ribbon and called it a day.
Today, I am thankful for the sun that is shining on this cold fall morning. (and for the coffee I will be getting shortly, shhhh.) :) Thanks for stopping by, I hope happy finds you today!
