Thanks Sew Much


Hi everyone! I decided to play along with another CR84FN color challenge. This time - it's all about red, pink and white!

Not sure why, but this color theme reminded me of the 1940's and 50's schoolbooks - you know, the kind with Dick and Jane (see Spot run). I immediately thought of my 5 and Dime papers from October Afternoon and found the perfect combination of my colors for this challenge.

I kept this card simple by adhering a buttons to a Jenni Bowlin journal tag, some pretty pink ribbon, and a little chipboard tag that I painted white and distressed. I just love the little sentiment - it's from Clear and Simple Stamp's On The Mend set. Sew cute! (sorry, but I had to be punny there.)

And just look at the mini wooden spool. Way too adorable! I wrapped some pink and white baker's twine around and decided this is my new favorite embellishment!
