Sewn Together Challenge #10

Hi Everyone

Firstly I have to make a HUGE apology that this post is two days late, I’ve had some family issues that have had to take priority but thankfully they are beginning to resolve themselves and I managed to get my card for this weeks Sew Many Cards challenge done!!!

The challenge for this week is a Theme Challenge – to make a card/paper crafts project using any Sewn Together Digi Stamp that has a Thanksgiving/Fall Theme to it (or Autumn as it is called in the UK), you also have to use brads, buttons or flowers (or all of them!)

Although in the UK we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving I was still really excited to do this challenge as I adore working with the stamps that Angela creates. So here is the card that I came up with.

Pilgrim Tayla Card I know I’ve told you this many times before but Angela’s Tiger image called Tayla is my absolute favourite of all the characters she designs, so when I found that she had made an image of Tayla as a Pilgrim then I knew which image I had to use for this weeks challenge. For this card I coloured her with my new Prismacolor pencils (please be kind this is only the second image I’ve coloured with them!) and blended them with Sansodor (UK version of Gamsol). To compliment the image and the theme of the challenge I used some papers from a Diecuts with a View set that I purchased from QVCUK. To finish off the card I added some grosgrain ribbon and some shaped buttons from my stash.

So now you have seen my take on this weeks challenge it is your turn to show us what you can do. You can find all the details on the Sew Many Cards Blog and you can also enter your creation on there too. For more inspiration for this challenge then why not check out my fab Design Team mates blogs – you can find a link to their blogs in my sidebar.

I will be back later today with details on the Sew Many Cards New Release Party – so look out for that!!!
