{stitches and stickers and bags...oh my}

While the My Sketch World board is undergoing some yearly maintenance, I've been working on some of the fun card challenges Lucy has given us this month. 
The first card is for a recipe challenge based on a beautiful card by my friend, Malin. To make our card we have to use 1 pattern paper, 1 piece of card stock, 4 flowers, 4 buttons and 1 sentiment.
I found a felt flower with a pretty big opening in the center and decided to fill it up with the required flowers and buttons.  The 3 brads have flowers on them and then there is the felt flower and the 4 buttons fill in the gaps nicely.

Here is a close up. I used an SRM sticker border and sentiment to finish my card.
Another challenge included using a bingo card.  I used a card off of a 12x 12 sheet of bingo cards from Teresa Collins.  I had it pretty much finished but thought the card was too stark against the pale papers so I slipped it in an SRM glassine bag and "stitched" it shut with some sticker stitches. 
 I added a thank you sentiment from the new Stickers By The Dozen Thank You set to the glassine bag. 
Love the vintage feel this card has, I haven't done vintage in a while and it seems like that was all I was attracted to at Archivers this week!  :)
Thanks for stopping by, have a terrific weekend, friends!
