I made this card for the Dirty Dozen challenges on SCS (March 2010). The theme this month is All Creatures Great and Small so I wanted my card to use animals. I thought the Bugs & Kisses set would work well with the sketch.
I really think I’m going to buy me a little Janome sewing machine. I did this sewing by hand it and it took forever! I do love the texture sewing provides though, and sometimes it is worth the effort.
I had a hard time pulling this card together and while I don’t love it, I do think it is cute. I think I got a little too ambitious with all the colors. I wanted color for the sentiment, but everything was too overwhelming. I settled for a white tag with a little blue oval peeking out behind it.
