The Craft's Meow Monthly Card Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday, all! Here is a card that I made for The Craft's Meow Monthly Card Sketch Challenge. First is this month's sketch by the fabulous Debbie Pamment:


Here is my card:


I used the fairy's wheel in the Life Is A Carnival set for my card. I stamped the image and sentiment on a piece of patterned paper cut using a Labels 18 die with walnut stain ink. The label piece is then inked with PTI's Tea Dye Duo inks.


The patterned paper is from the Yacht Club and Ladies & Gents collections and the edges are inked with PTI's Fresh Snow ink.

That's all I have for now. Play along with us and enter for a chance to win a set of TCM stamps of your choice. For more details and see all the fabulous samples from the design team members, please visit this post.

Also, someone asked me what I use to sew my paper. My sewing machine is a Kenmore Sensor Sew 70 and it's about 25 years old. =) It was given to me by my Mother-In-Law and it was a gift from my husband to her when he got his first job (or something like that). It just so happened that when she wanted to get rid of it a few years ago (she has upgraded to a better machine for quilting), I was started to be interested in sewing so I took it over. I have since abandoned sewing with fabric, but it works just fine sewing paper. I found some photos of the model on Google, see them here. Mine is more like the ones on the first raw. Hope this answers your question and I apologize for taking so long to answer this question. =)





Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!
