Time For Stitches - Timeless Tuesday 249

Welcome back to another fun and fabulous Timeless Tuesday challenge! Can you believe it is December already?  It's hard to think that 2014 is just upon us ready for some new year resolutions. :)

This month, we have some guest designers joining us to share some challenges with you and play in on the fun.  Today is our first guest designer -   Kerin Sylvester! Welcome Kerin! So, what does she have in store for you for a challenge? Stitches!

I love sewing on cards, but I will admit I am not very good at it.  I will just blame my machine though... hahaha! Some classes or lessons are certainly needed I think.  So if you don't look too closely, this creation should pass the challenge. For my card, I used this months new release of Friendship & Flowers.

I also used last weeks Freshly Made Sketch for  my layout.  Wanting the flower to be the center of attention, I stamped the image on some Flourishes Classic Cardstock in Ivory with Memento Black ink and colored it in with the following Copic colors: R21, R22, R24 and

The image was fussy cut out and popped up over the Flourishes Classic black cardstock which I sewed around the edges and sewed through the strips of patterned paper from Anna Griffins Yuletide Greetings collection.  I then stamped and colored in the butterfly to be popped up as well after stamping the sentiment with Versamark ink and using my detail white embossing powder to be heated and embossed.  The card was finished off with some pale green and pink pearls.  I really like the striking colors against the black and felt it made this flower pop.

Thanks so much for stopping in! Be sure to check out the other beautiful designs made from the Timeless Tuesday team.
