Krafty Girl Challenge 138

Happy weekend, my friends! =) It's time for a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog. This week's hostess is Kerry and here is my card for the challenge.

The challenge theme this week is "Stitching." Use real or faux stitching on your cards/projects for a chance to win an assortment of Trinket stamps! Kraftin' Kimmie is sponsoring this week's challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges and the challenge theme is also stitching, so don't forget to link up your challenge over there, too! =)

I used the beautiful Marilyn for my card. She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. All paper edges are inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks.

The patterned paper is from London Market 6x6 Collage Paper Pack by Pink Paislee. It's a more shabby/vintag-y style card that I haven't made for a little while. =) The sentiment comes with Marilyn.

That's all I have. Don't forget to check out what the other Krafty Girls came up with for this challenge here. We are also welcoming a few fabulous new Krafty Girls to the team, so make sure to check them out here! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
