Do You Stack Up? Challenge #41


This week's challenge at Do You Stack Up , and my FIRST with the Design Team,  is to
"Use Your Scraps"! 
Anyone who has seen my craft room knows that I have plenty of those!  I keep everything!  If it's larger than 6 x 6, it definately goes into my scrap DP file. 
My card was made up of 30 one inch squares I cut from some pieces of
October Afternoon, "Seaside" papers and then machine stitched each row.   I also used a Wild Card from October Afternoon for my image.  I love their papers with the vibrant colors and adorable vintage patterns!
"Thank You, Alison"!
I made this card as a "Thank you" to Alison and the rest of the Design Team at DYSU!  They have all been so kind and welcoming!
I am so addicted to the resin flowers and cameos that are popular now. And I couldn't help but grab a piece of yellow and white twine to accent the sewing and sentiment.
I want to also thank everyone who has come to my blog to see my project!  I know it's always said, but if you would leave a comment, it REALLY would make my day!
And, if you would, please add your name to  my "follower" list...
I have a goal of 100 followers by December 31st!
