Stitched Up!

Good morning! I hope everyone in Blog-land had a wonderful Father's Day, I know we did! Today is the Stitched Up (Real or Faux) challenge at Cards in Envy and I decided to make a quilt card (something I have not done before) I did 3 cards before I got one that I liked, I love challenges that encourage me to try new things! So, without further ado...
I used the My Sunshine stack from DCWV and brown gel pen for the stitching. To link up for the challenge got to Cards in Envy, and be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations there is some fabulous inspiration going on over there!

Other Challenges:
Little Red Wagon - 3 or More Patterned Papers
Oldie But a Goodie - Anything Goes w/something at least 6mo. old 
(pre-cut card base from my stash and long lost gel pens)
Ruby's Rainbow - Inchies

Sketch #5 at Cards in Envy

I just love the challenges that we have at Cards in Envy, they are perfect for Operation Write Home, or anyone that wants to make cards that you can mail easily.  I have a HUGE family (8 brothers, 7 sisters and about 40 nieces and nephews plus my husbands family) so being able to send cards by regular mail makes a big difference.  I used DCWV's Garden Party stack for the checkered paper, the flower was a cut out from my stash and the Bakers Twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The rest of the design team has some great inspiration to share so be sure to check them out when you go to Cards in Envy to enter. Just follow the sketch, and make a standard A2 size card, no thicker than 1/4", and you are mail ready!

-other challenges I am entering today-
Pile It On - Stripes or Plaid
