Repeat Impressions What If? Wed DCC Challenge

Designer's Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built this week is hosted by Michelle and she is challenging us (and you!) to use stitching in our cards -faux or real. I have a little sewing machine for crafts somewhere but have never used it.... So I used my Scor-Bug and a thin purple marker to do faux stitching around the edge of the white diagonal piece and the green embossed (Cuttlebug) piece. I also distressed the edges of that piece. Repeat Impression's Lily of the Valley stamp was stamped in the center of a diagonal white piece and colored then separated into 4 pieces and reassembled on a larger purple piece. The last step was to add white Flower Soft on the flower stamp.

Come join us for this fun DCC challenge - you have almost two weeks to enter for a chance to win some great RI rubber! Visit our blog for all the details and to see what the other Rock Stars have done to inspire you.

I am entering this card in the challenge at I Did It Creations of Anything Goes.

Stamping smiles, Karen
