EIC 45 and CPS124


Oh my poor, neglected little blog and all my neglected blog buddies...

It's been a very busy month, what with work, getting my son to and from day camp every day for a week, and VSN, but I have time today to tackle a few challenges.
This card is based on CPS sketch 124, and is also for Etsy Inspired Challenge #45, The Daily Pincushion, which features some truly adorable felt pincushions. (My Mom used to have one shaped like a tomato -- your's probably did, too; I think it came from Woolworth's.) As my inspriation piece, I actually chose a couple of really cute felt tags the shop sells -- I kind of combined design elements of both, and it really fit well into the CPS sketch.

I bought the blue DPs ages ago and stumbled upon them recently, so it was good to finally cut into them. The ribbon (someday I'll learn how to photograph satin ribbon) has a line of tiny beads down the middle, very cool, but a little hard to work with.

The flower stamps are from SU's Heartfelt Thanks. (I bought it at a stamping consignment sale, and this is the first I've used it. The original owner did an absolutely horrid job of trimming and mounting the rubber and I can't line anything up.)
