Midweek throwdown challenge on Operation Write Home's blog today! This week it's Tags and Twine; Make a card that uses both. After playing with the arrangement, I ended up with this card. The background, sentiment and tape measure are all Club Scrap stamps from way back in 2004. The yellow paper came with the stitching already on it, which was a good thing, because I hate dragging the sewing machine out of the closet where it lives.
My rule usually says that if I drag out everything I own for a particular card or theme, that I might as well make one or more cards before I put it all away. So today's theme obviously is sewing!
The image is from Viva Las Vegas Art Stamps and the sentiment is Stampin Up. I pierced and hand stitched the border along the two edges. I was going to do daisy chain stitch, but couldn't remember how; it's been a long time since I did any embroidery.
