Clean and Simple Challenge #11
I am late posting this on my blog because I was away for my grandmother's funeral. She passed quite suddenly early Friday morning and is now with Jesus and her husband, whom she has missed so much for over twenty years. She would have loved this card!
The challenge was to use JC Penney's children's bedding for inspiration. I used this set here for my inspiration. What a fun challenge this was, and I'm going to go back and make a few more cards from different sets.
This card looks much more complicated than it is. I used a square punch on scraps of cardstock for the border and "wrote" the stitches with coordinating SU markers. The hearts are PTI's nesting punches. The flowers are a punch I've had forever. The faux stitching didn't take nearly as long as I expected it to take. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Quilter's Sampler.
Hope you like it!
