Last Days Of Summer ~ PaperTake Challenge


Well, the Summer is sadly drawing to a close. In exactly 1 week my two eldest will be off to school. I always get a little sad because I will miss having them here. We are trying to cram as much as we can into this last week. I wanted to do another Summer card so I chose this lovely Magnolia background and sweet girl and colored them up with distress inks. The challenge was "A Stitch in Time" which means you need to have some form of stitching on your card. So I finally was given the incentive to haul out my sewing machine. It usually makes an appearance to make Hallowe'en costumes and Christmas decorations but that is usually it! I wasn't sure how it would go but it was pretty easy!



  • Stamps: Magnolia
  • Inks: Stazon Black
  • Paper: SU! River Rock, Memory Box DP
  • Coloring: Distress Inks
  • Embellies: Butterfly from Dollar store, Sewing Machine Stitching

    Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your last few days of summer!
