Have you been seeing all the buttons lately? PTI is introducing them as a new product line, and that's all I've been seeing! I just got these Latte buttons from SU today and wasn't intending on using them, but it went perfectly with this card! My SIL had knee surgery yesterday and I needed to make a card. I had forgotten that this Quilter's Sampler from PTI had this sentiment, spool of thread and needle in it! When I saw it, I knew those buttons would work in beautifully!
This card started with two challenges: the sketch challenge on SCS and the Color Throwdown challenge of regal rose, chocolate chip, and kiwi kiss. Love that combo! (As I was linking this, I read how Danielle came up with these colors: regal rose for roses, chocolate chip for chocolate, and kiwi kiss for kisses.) This is perfect for a Valentine, but I needed a get well card and it still works for that! When I do a color challenge, I take scraps of the colors I'm going to work with then proceed to my pattern paper. I find ones with those colors and then start paring them up. I found this gorgeous kiwi kiss piece in SU's new Raspberry Tart and the chocolate swiss dot piece in Bella Rose. They looked great together, so it was on to the other layers. I used the regal rose and PTI white and cut and embossed them with the curved rectangle dies. I stamped my image in close to cocoa and colored it with copic markers. The needle was stamped in Versamark and embossed with silver ep. Looks just like a real needle! I put the piece back into the die and sponged the rose ink around it because it was too white. The sentiment was stamped on the rose piece in Adrondack Espresso. The rose piece and the dp were sponged around the edges with close to cocoa. I had to run out in the middle of making this card for an appointment, so I stopped at JoAnn's to get some embroidery floss (of course in rose, kiwi, and chocolate!) so I could thread my buttons! I just used the rose and kiwi colors on this card. I didn't get too fancy on the inside. I just cut and embossed a rose piece and sponged the edges. The sentiment is from SU's retired Quick Thinking and I stamped the needle and just the thread. This layout was so easy to work with! I hope my SIL likes it! Thanks for stopping by!
