Quotable Quotes...

Serendipity Stamps second March challenge was to use one of the quotes from the line... and wow are there a few to choose from...yes! Made it hard but I finally narrowed it down to this one.

I took this side shot to get a better picture of the small rectangle, so you could see the pearly shimmer better, but it was not to be.

~More things stamp (027D)
~Dark green cardstock (card base is 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" other square is 3 1/4" x 3 1/4")
~Green gingham cardstock
~White cardstock
~Brown Ink
~Antique Linen Distress Stain from Tim Holtz, brand new product, get some quick.
~Perfect Pearl mist
~Brown Thread
~Green Ribbon
~Sewing machine

1. Cut gingham smaller than green base. Use stain to age the gingham, then adhere to base. Stitch around gingham in brown.
2. Use stain to color white cardstock and stamp sentiment on top, adhere to green and stitch a border. Then attach the whole thing to the card front.
3. Tie ribbon around front in a pretty bow.

This card went together so quickly but has a real put together feel to it. And again I have tried at making and antique look, this is really becoming a habit for me, but a good one of course.

And so after looking at my email one more time I realized I was supposed to use the following sketch to make my card this month... so I started creating again, this challenge is a two for one.

So I used all the same supplies since they were all out, and came up with the following card... enjoy!

Now check out all the other wonderful quote creations from the design team.
