Julia

This is for one very special blogging friend, Julia. Julia lost her mom this past week due to cancer and my heart is very sad for her loss. I wanted to make something for her as she has been a great support for me as a new blogger. I rolled a few challenges into one today. This is based on the CPS sketch of the week. I wanted my center image to mimic the beautiful DP by Amy Butler. I used my stitched dalhia stamp by Savvy, masked and colored with prismacolors. I then sponged ink around them to match the pretty blue in the DP. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the circle....tougher than it looks! Added the MSE sentiment and stitched that on too. Topped off with a prima,ribbon and some jewels and I really hope Julia likes it.

Hugs and prayers for you Julia, my blogging friend.

Very nice! The design is very versatile-could use it for many occaisions.

Pretty ironic that you are still sewing the paper version....maybe you can make J a paper quilt, since you have two of the three designs I wanted. haha

Wow! Lots of work, and it is a beautiful card. I can't even stitch a straight line segment well, and your circle looks perfect. Incredible card.

what a beautiful card! I'm sure she'll love receiving this- I read her blog too and notice that she does lots of stitching so I'm sure your efforts will not go unnoticed. :)
