Hope you had a great weekend! Today I'm sharing the card I made for the Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge that Courtney has debuted!
The challenge is to "Use something from the mail as part of your card or scrapbook page!" I received a Boden catalogue in the mail a few days ago and I love all the photos of the cozy sweaters arranged together in beautiful colors.
I cut out a portion and matted it on the back page of the catalogue to give it more weight. Then, I handstitched a line of twine from button to button on the photo. I tried to give the card lots of texture with the embossed dots and the machine stitching around the mat.
Thanks for coming by!
