Want a Challenge?

Happy Tuesday! Did you know that Paper Pretties has a Weekly Challenge hosted by our very own Danielle?! She comes up with some really fun challenges, inspires you with her wonderful creation for the challenge and invites you to upload your work in the Paper Pretties Gallery. So fun!! I love challenges, it always gives you a starting point - which is usually the hardest part for me! Go check them out and play along!

Ok, this week's challenge (they are put up every Thursday) was to use this sketch - a tall, skinny card. I don't make enough of these! I used some pretty American Crafts paper and ribbon that I've had for a bit now from Emma's Paperie.

I love paper piecing Sophia and this fun purple polka dot made a cute robe. I actually made this card for my second daughter Anna. She took a tumble when we were at the lake this weekend and scraped up her arm and leg. Nothing too bad but she takes things quite seriously so I made this card with her in mind - she loves purple! I love these extra long rectangle Nestabilities - so fun for this type of layout!! :)

I added some pretty AC ribbon to finish up the sketch and stitched it on a la Mish (I just think of her when I see this! :) ). You know, it's kinda difficult to sew in crazy, non-straight lines! LOL!

Thanks for visiting! Hope you're having a great week! :)
