Today's Challenge . . .

I just can't get enough of this beautiful 'Ladies Frock Together Digi Stamp' and it's just perfect for paper piecing (which I've done here) and since I was having trouble with the ole 40+ year old sewing machine, I decided to do faux stitching around my card & image. The designer paper I chose to use is from the My Mind's Eye 'Stella and Rose' paper pack.  I made the flowers using Sakaras punches, gold & orange cardstock & Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink. Oh ... and the leaves are from a Sizzix die - #656064.

Please be sure to jump on over to the Challenge Blog and see all the amazing work done by the Design Team ... they are AMAZING!!!   

Thanks again to SCH for letting me be a part of their fun and thanks goes out to all of you who continue to honor me with your visits & comments!  I'm so blessed!!
