Inky Impressions Challenge #21 --- Stitching But No DP

Inky Impressions Challenges are always fun --- and creative! This week there is no sketch, but there are two requirements: No designer paper (what!!! no dp? What will I do; what will I do?) AND stitching, real or faux. Well, I guess I go simple -- not easy for me! I love layers and embellies. But, I also love my Cuttlebug and embossing folders. So, here is my card.............

Requirement #1: No designer paper. Ok. I used Papertrey white cardstock and made a simple top fold note card.

Requirement #2: Stitching, real or faux. Well, my sewing machine is still crated away somewhere (I must go on a search for that soon), but the Cuttlebug embossing borders set called "Just My Type" has this great zig-zag and buttons. So, some simple runs through the 'bug, tracing with Sharpies and I have faux zig-zag. Then some colored pen magic and I have sewn on buttons. Ta-da!

Requirement #3: Of course, Inky Impressions Lili, colored with Copics and mounted on a pretty purple card stock.

The ribbon is from my stash of fun patterned ribbons. Simple is good, and fun, and cute! For more good, fun and cute, hop on over to Inky Impressions and have a look at the design teams' projects. Join in the fun, too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Barb, what a cute card. I love the image too, she's darling and coloured to perfection. What would we do without our Cuttlebug? Good thinking, my friend!
