'Tis the Ides of March, but that's good news cuz that means it's time for another brand spankin' new Cardabilities sketch reveal!
Here's sketch #27 by the sketch master Karan Gerber:
I went for a vintage meets romantic a la shabby chic feel. The first card is the one at the Cardabilities blog, but I decided to make my own flower & make it even more romantic by adding pearls instead of bling.
Here's a closer peek:
Here's a side peek:
I luuuuv the stitch detail on the sketch, but I so don't sew, just faux :( Why you may ask??? well, ok, I'll admit it. I'm kinda afraid I'll sew my fingers together or something----> eeek! Yes, I'll pass up the sewing machines in the store & I'll hear the theme song to "Jaws" in my head as the needle goes up & down---> slowly at first, then at full speed coming after my fingers!!!
Maybe if I had this awesomely amazing sewing machine I would get over my fear, right!?
I hope you get a chance to play along with this sketch so I can envy your stitch work! Be sure to Linky your card to the Cardabilities blog by the 29th & while you're there, treat yourself to the amazing work the rest of the DT has created for ya.
There's a tut on SCS on a stitched ribbon flower. They use lace trim, (I used satin ribbon) but the steps are the same. You can find that tut----> here.
Thanks so much for peeking today!
